Kern County Calif. Dairy Produces First RNG (Ind. Report)
In the Golden State, CalBioGas, a joint venture between California Bioenergy, Chevron U.S.A., and local dairy farmers, report its first renewable natural gas (RNG) from dairy farms in Kern County.
CalBioGas is developing anaerobic digester projects across three geographic clusters in Kern, Tulare, and Kings Counties.
The dairy biomethane projects are designed to send dairy biogas to a centralised processing facility where it will be upgraded to RNG, injected into local utility SoCalGas' pipeline and marketed as an alternative fuel for heavy-duty vehicles.

Chevron, California Bioenergy to Produce Biomethane
Chevron U.S.A. Inc. and California Bioenergy announced a joint investment in a holding company with California dairy farmers to produce and market dairy biomethane as a vehicle fuel in the state.
The holding company, CalBioGas, secured funding from Chevron to build infrastructure for dairy biomethane projects in California’s San Joaquin Valley, adding to the investment from dozens of dairy farmers.
Manure storage on dairy farms results in the release of methane, a highly potent greenhouse gas. CalBio brings technology, operational experience and capital to help dairy farmers build digesters and methane capture projects to convert this methane to a beneficial use as renewable natural gas.
The dairy biomethane projects are designed to send dairy biogas to a centralized processing facility, where it will be upgraded to RNG and injected into the local gas utility’s pipeline. The RNG is then marketed as an alternative fuel for heavy-duty trucks, buses, and eventually off-road and farm equipment. (Source: Transport Topics, 24 June, 2019)
CalBio, Chevron Partner on Dairy Biomethane Projects (Ind Report)
In the Golden State, Visalia-headquartered California Bioenergy LLC and oil giant Chevron are reporting a joint investment in CalBioGas LLC, a holding company with California dairy farmers to produce and market dairy biomethane as a transportation fuel in compliance with California's Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS).
CalBio will help dairy farmers build digesters and methane capture projects to convert methane into renewable natural gas (RNG). Chevron will fund as many as 18 digesters across three geographic "clusters" in Kern, Tulare and Kings counties. The three clusters of digesters have been awarded California Department of Food and Agriculture grants which must be augmented with additional capital to complete the projects.
