Modesto’s Crystal Creamery Wins Award from EPA Using Organic Solution Management’s Anaerobic Digestion System

Indianapolis, IN, December 31, 2015– Crystal Creamery, a Modesto-based dairy, has won an Innovation Award from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for their use of Organic Solution Management’s Anaerobic Digestion System.

OSM-operated Fiscalini Farms has partnered with Crystal Creamery since 2014 to use the dairy’s waste products in their anaerobic co-digestion facility. This anaerobic digestion system allows for organic byproducts removed from Crystal Creamery’s waste water to be collected and mixed with manure and other food waste to produce valuable commodities like electricity and a liquid and a solid byproduct that is later turned into fertilizer.

The anaerobic digestion method is much more beneficial to Crystal Creamery than their previous composting method of management or animal feed supplement, reducing the dairy’s waste water output to the City of Modesto’s Publicly Operated Treatment Works (POTW) by an additional 70%, minimizing the city’s cost of treatment and landfilling costs.

Additional benefits from this OSM process include:

  • Enough energy generated to power 100+ homes
  • A reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and a smaller carbon footprint for Crystal Creamery
  • decreased wastewater management costs by over 10%
