LEADING THE ORGANIC WASTE TO RENEWABLE ENERGY MOVEMENT ACROSS AMERICA

Every day, we set out to change the way the world views waste and how each of us powers our lives. We are committed to reducing on-farm and food-generated greenhouse gas emissions from waste by as much as 95 percent and recycling organic waste into a powerful source of renewable energy and low-carbon fertilizer. We work alongside farms to manage manure, enhance regenerative agriculture practices, improve soil health, protect watersheds, and support herd wellness. Our Farm Powered Strategic Alliance with major food manufacturers and retailers, dairy organizations, and farms provides a path to decarbonization for our partners and a measurable impact in combating climate change.

REGENERATING WHAT WAS CONSIDERED WASTE TO BENEFIT PEOPLE AND THE PLANET

Vanguard Renewables is the national leader in the development of dairy waste-to-energy projects.
We work hand-in-hand with the dairy industry to solve greenhouse gas emissions challenges and enhance long-term operational and economic benefits for farmers. The Farm Powered program offers dairies a reliable, professionally operated manure and emissions solution that benefits farms, communities, and the planet. And we provide businesses with waste regeneration and decarbonization strategies that meet aggressive sustainability mandates.

Vanguard Renewables
Food and Farm Waste to Renewable Energy

The food waste challenge is epic. Where some see a problem, our organics to renewable energy team sees an opportunity. We work with farms and businesses to transform what was considered waste to create value for people and the planet. Vanguard’s Farm Powered facilities regenerate food waste and farm manure into renewable energy and low-carbon fertilizer. Our Farm Powered Strategic Alliance supports decarbonization and corporate ESG goals while providing the transparency and traceability of waste streams that our customers want.

Vanguard Renewables Ag
Dairy Manure-Only to Renewable Natural Gas

Vanguard Renewables Ag develops and operates Farm Powered manure-only anaerobic digestion facilities on U.S. dairy farms. Our facilities improve manure and nutrient management, sequester methane to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and produce clean energy. A typical Vanguard Renewables Ag dairy waste to energy project consists of a cluster of two to four farms and 10,000 to 30,000 dairy cows. Our Farm Powered program can be the foundation of a dairy’s sustainability plan for generations to come.

STRATEGIC ALLIANCE WITH DAIRY FARMERS OF AMERICA

Our long-term strategic alliance with Dairy Farmers of America and other farm organizations enables us to offer farms a seamless pathway toward hosting an anaerobic digester on their farm. We own and operate six Farm Powered anaerobic digesters in the Northeast that recycle more than 500 tons of organic waste per day into renewable energy. And we are hard at work on at least 10 more such projects nationwide. Vanguard has the track record and the capital to help farmers meet sustainability goals and catalyze the regeneration of organic waste into renewable energy.
