Vanguard Renewables is a national leader in the development of organics-to-renewable energy projects.

Our Farm Powered program provides solutions that benefit businesses, farms, communities, and the planet. We work hand-in-hand with dairy farmers to help manage manure, enhance regenerative agriculture practices, solve greenhouse gas emissions challenges, and enhance long-term operational and economic benefits. And we provide food and beverage businesses with waste reduction and recycling solutions, and decarbonization strategies, that meet aggressive sustainability targets.  

LEADING THE ORGANIC WASTE TO RENEWABLE ENERGY MOVEMENT ACROSS AMERICA

Every day, we set out to change the way the world views waste and how each of us powers our lives. We are committed to reducing on-farm and food-generated greenhouse gas emissions from waste by as much as 95 percent and recycling organic waste into a powerful source of renewable energy and low-carbon fertilizer. We work alongside farms to manage manure, enhance regenerative agriculture practices, improve soil health, protect watersheds, and support herd wellness. Our Farm Powered Strategic Alliance with major food manufacturers and retailers, dairy organizations, and farms provides a path to decarbonization for our partners and a measurable impact in combating climate change.
