Calgren will collect cow manure from four dairy farms and process it using an anaerobic digesters to produce methane emissions which will then be used to produce transportation fuel. The digesters in the Calgren project are partially funded under California's Dairy Digester Research and Development Programme, which aims to reduce GHG emissions from manure generated at state dairy farms. California currently has about 30 operational dairy RNG projects and 50 under development.
A 2016 study by the University of California, Davis found California has the potential to produce approximately 90.6 billion cubic feet (bcf) per year of renewable natural gas from dairy, landfill, municipal solid waste, and wastewater treatment plant sources alone -- sufficient to meet the annual natural gas needs of around 2.3 million California homes. According to the U.S. DOE the U.S. currently produces 1 trillion cubic feet of renewable natural gas every year, and that number is expected to increase to 10 trillion by 2030.

The 5 million gpy biodiesel facility will be engineered and built by Jatrodiesel Inc.,
The facility will utilize high-FFA feedstock, including distillers corn oil produced on-site from Calgren's ethanol process, along with brown grease, acid oils and other low-cost feedstocks.
The grant is being awarded to Calgren Renewable Fuels through its special-purpose entity, SJV Biodiesel LLC. Startup is expected before the year end.
