What We Do

The Vanguard Renewables Organics Co-Digestion Program is a Farm Powered Organics to Energy Lifecycle that solves food waste challenges and supports the American farmer

The American farmer is in significant trouble. With milk prices at below production cost and energy and operational costs soaring, farmers are looking for innovative solutions to sustain family farms for future generations. Using Farm Powered anaerobic digestion, the Vanguard Renewables Organics Co-Digestion Program is a farm-based Organics to Energy opportunity that offers farmers relief from rising energy costs and manure disposal challenges. It provides food manufacturers, food retailers, businesses, and institutions an organics recycling solution that complies with waste bans, provides the opportunity to help a local farm, and helps save the environment.

How Farm Powered co-digestion works

A zero-waste closed loop lifecycle, the Farm Powered Organics to Energy Lifecycle co-digestion process combines food-based organic waste and farm manure for the environmentally sustainable production of renewable energy and other valuable by-products.
