The article reports that RealEnergy, developer of on-site power systems for commercial buildings, will start construction on a manure-to-energy project at the Rickreall Dairy in Oregon. The project is designed to convert manure to methane gas to fire electric power generators. Pacific Power will acquire the energy produced from the project. An on-site methane digester will be used to dispose of the waste to control odor problems and allow the dairy to grow its herd.
