Custom Energy, Inc. represents many of the leading dairy and hog farms in the nation. Each farm client undergoes a thorough pre-qualification process aimed at expediting developer due diligence and financial underwriting. Digester development opportunities are outlined in a confidential prospectus detailing farm size, location, ownership and operating history, wet cow equivalency, herd composition, manure handling practices, bedding, barn environment, gas pipeline infrastructure, and other factors. 

Digester Project Feasibility Consulting

Want to find out if your farm is right for a biogas digester? As part of CEI’s complementary feasibility consulting service, we will evaluate your farm across more than thirty distinct criteria to determine the true feasibilty and revenue potential for your project. This is a great first step for anyone just starting to consider a biogas digester.

Project Marketing

The most crucial step in a farm biogas digester project is finding the right development partner. A good partner will bring not only capital assets to the project but also proven facility contruction and operations know-how, gas offtake expertise, and a focus on collaboration and team success. We leverage our decades of experience and extensive network of trusted industry contacts to position your farm for the best deal with the right partner.

How large does a farm need to be to support a biogas digester?

Digesters are available in a variety of sizes and can support any size farm. The smallest of these are “home” digesters, which are easily installed, inexpensive, and capable of processing light quantities of food and animal waste. These digesters are available from several agriculture supply retailers.

At the other end of the scale, industrial digesters are specially engineered and constructed to process manure from large, commercial farm operations. Design and construction may require up to two years and substantial capital investment.  If a farm is too small to substantiate such investment, they may be able to participate in the operation of a nearby digester by selling its manure to the digester operator.
