Lignium Energy


A New Standard in Farming & Energy


Cows defecate on average 30 kg/day (USDA)


With 1,500 MM heads of cattle in the world, there is an excessive amount of manure generated annually

Did you know?

Cow manure generates environmental, social and regulatory problems

Water pollution problem

-Surface water contamination (rivers, lagoons)

-Groundwater contamination (wells)

-Drinking water contamination

Soil contamination problem

-Soil saturation, chemicals excess

-Poisoning of livestock that consume the soils

-Pests and bacteria generation

Air pollution problem

-Greenhouse gases generation (CH4 and N2O)

-Generation of bad odors

-It favors the fires generation

Social problems

-Conflicts with neighboring communities

-Higher risk of diseases (Donham,2007)

-Public opinion problems

Regulatory problems

-Closure of operation for dairy and beef cattle product to environmental problems


We solve manure problem transforming manure into combustion pellets generating wealth from it


We separate the solid from the liquid of the animal slurry


We leave the liquid part and clean the solid to generate biomass



With the biomass we generate a certified pellet  that complies with all regulations

With the solid part we generate odorless, high calorific and pathogen-free biomass


Solving manure problem generating a triple impact


Environmentally friendly by

Reducing dairy’s GHG by 15% given the current manure management in the U.S

Having a negative carbon footprint

Having the most environmentally friendly fuel on the market in its production and combustion

Reducing the felling of trees and contribute to the barn circular economy

Solving social problems by

Delivering cheap fuel to the population helping the decontamination of cities

Eliminating bad manure odors in farms

Economical   solution by

Producing the cheapest non-fossil fuel on the market

With a calorific value similar to its competition (wood pellet)

Fulfilling with the regulations related to pellet production, creating a product free of odors and pathogens

Competing in a market that is growing exponentially (pellet market)
