FTI applied Rockwell Automation technologies at a digester facility in Dane County, Wisconsin. The manure from more than 4,000 cows is collectively processed to produce renewable natural gas (RNG). The biogas is captured and further processed into RNG to offset the use of fossil fuels. The RNG is then injected into the pipeline near Madison, Wisconsin, where it provides clean-burning vehicle fuel, reducing emissions by more than 13,500 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year.

The Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork Innovation Awards honor the achievements of organizations that have successfully planned and executed innovative and transformational solutions in one or multiple areas of their business through the application of Rockwell and other partners’ digital and disruptive technologies.

“We are proud to have received the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork Sustainability Award.
