Dane County project offers biogas producers a pipeline portal

Chris Hubbuch | Wisconsin State Journal

A first-of-its-kind renewable gas unloading station went into service last week at the Dane County Landfill, unloading a trailer full of methane that just days earlier was wafting from a pool of cow manure at a dairy farm in Campbellsport.

The methane, known as renewable natural gas — or biogas — hissed through a tangle of pipes connected to a natural gas pipeline, where it will eventually be burned in place of fossil fuels.

Each trailer load contains the biogas equivalent of 2,400 to 3,000 gallons of gasoline. The county has the capacity to unload about 10 trailers per day, which means at full capacity it could handle the renewable fuel equivalent of 20 million gallons of gasoline.
