High Plains Ponderosa Dairy, located in Plains, Kansas, milks its cows in a rotary barn, which is a large carousel much like a merry-go-round. The dairy is collaborating with Shell on a greenfield dairy manure to RNG project. Once operational Shell Downstream Galloway is expected to produce more than 500,000 MMBtu a year of negative carbon intensity RNG using cow manure from the dairy.

Shell is constructing a dairy manure to renewable natural gas (RNG) facility to be co-located at the High Plains Ponderosa Dairy in Plains, Kansas. Once operational Shell Downstream Galloway is expected to produce more than 500,000 MMBtu a year of negative carbon intensity RNG using cow manure from the dairy. 

Reducing the carbon intensity of the energy products we sell and helping our customers to decarbonize are pathways for Shell to meet its ambition to be a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050 or sooner. The use of RNG in the form of compressed natural gas (R-CNG) can reduce CO2 emissions from around 50 percent to 100 percent compared to fossil fuels. When used as a vehicle fuel in an ultra-low NOx natural gas engine, R-CNG from waste sources has a low to negative carbon intensity footprint.

Shell Downstream Galloway is part of a broader portfolio of anaerobic digestion projects in the US supporting the use of low carbon intensity R-CNG for on-road transport.
