CDFA Announces Grants for New Dairy Digesters – Several BAC Members Receive Funding!

As part of its Climate Smart Agriculture program, CDFA just announced $67 million in grant funding for 43 separate dairy digester projects.  Together, the projects will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 7 million metric tons of CO2e emissions.  Several of the projects are part of larger dairy digester clusters that will combine the biogas they produce at a single cleanup location and inject it into SoCalGas pipelines.  Grant recipients include California Bioenergy and Calgren Dairy Fuels/Maas Energy.

The full list of grant recipients, their project descriptions, and the greenhouse gas reductions from each project is available on CDFA’s website.
