Technical details

A stone's throw away from Craters of the Moon National Monument, surrounded by circular crop fields, is Bettencourt Dairy in Gooding Idaho.

At the #6 portion of Bettencourt Dairy (hence the B6 name), an anaerobic digester project has been installed, utterly improving the carbon impact of the local bovine inhabitants. The digester will capture methane-rich biogas emanating from the anaerobic decay of the dairy manure that would have otherwise been emitted into the atmosphere (that's right - it's not just the cow burps that create methane, but also the manure left behind by our cud-chewing friends). The project will also produce renewable electricity from the biogas produced in the digester.

So next time you visit the Craters of the Moon monument, or perhaps are reading about cows jumping over the moon to your little one, think about the planet saving work that is happening at B6 in Gooding Idaho.

Cloverly buys offsets that meet accepted standards for being real, measurable, verifiable, permanent, and additional. "Additional" means that the carbon savings would not have happened without the offset project and that the project would not have happened unless it got certified to sell carbon offsets. The Climate Action Reserve oversees verification of the B6 Dairy Farm project. You can find verification documents at https://thereserve2.apx.com/mymodule/reg/prjView.asp?id1=593.
