Our success story this week takes us to Fair Oaks Farms in Fair Oaks, Indiana, where things run on the power of “poo.”

Here, cow manure isn’t waste, but a valuable commodity.

Once collected, it’s put into a bio digester, where methane is harnessed.

The gas is purified, and then piped over and compressed at this fill station owned by ampcng, a u.s. department of energy national clean fleets partner.

More than enough renewable cng is produced at Fair Oaks farms to fill up a fleet of 42 milk haulers, displacing 1 ½ million gallons of diesel each year.

GRANT ZIMMERMAN: “We can reduce NOx, which is essentially smog causing pollutants, by 90% or better.”

JOHN DAVIS: The station was built with help from the greater Indiana clean cities coalition. Proving that cows can contribute much more than just milk to the long haul.
