ADM to set up renewable natural gas project at Decatur facility

December 12, 2016 |

In Illinois, Archer Daniels Midland Co. recently announced a project in which renewable natural gas, produced as a byproduct at ADM’s corn processing facility in Decatur, Illinois, will be distributed by Ameren Illinois into the nation’s natural gas infrastructure.

Methane is a natural byproduct of the anaerobic digestion process from ADM’s Decatur wastewater treatment facility. When construction of the project is complete, ADM will purify this methane into pipeline quality natural gas and transport it to an Ameren Illinois’ gas pipeline. Ameren Illinois will then distribute the gas into the interstate pipeline system where it will be available for use as a clean, affordable transportation fuel. ADM is targeting completion of construction in May 2017.
