The Scenic View Dairy Methane Reduction Project consists of a digester taking manure from the dairy farm and the swinery across the street called Mushroom Farm. The dairy farm is home to 2,200 milking cows and 1,500 heifers. Mushroom Farm is home to 10,000 swine which also contributes manure to the digester.
A biogas control and combustion system was installed in 2006. The Project consists of three above-ground, complete mix anaerobic digesters.
The project is generating electricity and has a nameplate capacity of 900 kilowatts with its two Caterpillar gas turbine engines.
