Making milk makes a mess for dairy farms. Whether it’s air emissions, odors, solid waste or effluent, dairies need better ways to manage manure from farm animals and handle these environmental compliance costs economically.
Regenis has multiple solutions to manage your agricultural waste sustainably and even create new sources of revenue to help offset these costs.
Regenis builds and operates two different types of digesters to meet the manure management needs of dairies with herd sizes from 1,000 cows to 100,000 cows and beef up farm revenues.
Dairy Digester Revenue Streams/Cost Reductions
Dairy biogas can run an on-farm electric generator
Dairy biogas can be sold to the local utility for a profit
Dairy biogas can be cleaned and injected into natural gas pipelines as renewable natural gas (RNG) and sold as renewable energy credits
Dairy manure digester kills pathogens and bacteria like e-Coli, leaving behind solids that can be used for clean cow bedding or sold as a peat moss replacement
Post-manure dairy digester solids (digestate) are rich in organic nutrients like phosphorous and nitrogen, which can be used on-farm for crops or sold at a profit as bio-fertilizers
Separation of solids and liquids in dairy digester process means reducing “tipping fees” due to less volume
Manure from other dairies can be imported and treated for fees
Using digestate allows for more precise nutrient application to farm fields, better soil health and reduces the chances of phosphorous or nitrogen runoff into local watersheds.

Regenis dairy digesters have received multiple awards from the American Biogas Council for their durability and uptime.

"Not only did we get a great American-designed digester with Regenis, but we also inherited a partner whose integrity is a solid as their building skills."
