Clean Energy Fuels Corp. on Wednesday said it would construct a methane capture digester at Millenkamp Dairy in Jerome, Idaho, one of the largest dairy farms in the U.S.
The company said the project is expected to provide 5 million gallons of low carbon-intensity renewable natural gas annually, which would flow into Clean Energy's fueling network.
The Millenkamp project will be developed through Clean Energy's joint venture with BP Plc.
"With carbon reduction up to 500%, RNG is the epitome of renewable energy," Clean Energy Chief Executive Andrew Littlefair said. "It presents enormous potential in sustainable transportation, so we're focused on a pathway to grow both the production and distribution of this negative carbon intensity fuel."
Clean Energy shares rose 7% to $5.88 in premarket trading.
