A cattle feedlot in Kirkton, Ontario uses a combination of manure and organic material to create biogas using an anaerobic digestion process.
Energy produced by the farm powers all of the on-site operations as well as the private residences on the property. Additional energy is sold back to the utility adding to the farm’s income.
The biogas is created with a CHP system installed by Elite Energy Systems.
“We at Gardiner Farms are excited with Elite’s partnership in this project,” said Joel Gardiner, operations manager. “Anaerobic digestion and on-farm energy production is a great addition to our existing farm operations. Elite’s CHP units will play an integral role in supplying our farm, and the Province of Ontario, with renewable energy.”
