USDA-NRCS State Conservation Engineer and NRCS staff visit Ag Waste Solutions

USDA-NRCS State Conservation Engineer and NRCS staff visit Ag Waste SolutionsLuis Laracuente, USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Conservation Engineer for California, along with other NRCS representatives, visited the Ag Waste Solutions project site at Scott Brothers Dairy Farms on February 5, 2015. Steve McCorkle, Bruce Scott and Michael Bagtang are shown here hosting a tour of the system for Mr. Laracuente (fourth from the right) and the other NRCS visitors. The AWS project is partially funded by a national grant from NRCS, in addition to a state grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC). There is tremendous interest on a international, national, state and local level in the first-ever project to convert manure and other potentially polluting ag wastes into valuable fertilizers, clean water and the cleanest burning diesel fuel available on the planet - all in a closed-loop system that creates additional profit centers on farms to help Sustain Global Farming.
