Novilla RNG Announces Start Of Construction At Trillium Hill Farm

Company Expects To Be Reliably Producing RNG In The Spring Of 2023 At Trillium Hill Farm With Several More Projects To Follow Later In 2023

Three Petals RNG, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Novilla Investment Holdings, LLC (Novilla RNG) announced the beginning of construction of its first dairy renewable natural gas (RNG) project at Trillium Hill Farm (Trillium Hill). The start of construction comes only two months after executing a manure rights contract and eight months after the execution of a letter of intent with the dairy. This project represents the first of several under development by Novilla RNG to begin construction.

The fully funded project, located in Berlin, Wisconsin, will use dairy manure from Trillium Hill to generate an estimated 375,000 gallons (1.42 million liters) of gasoline equivalent of ultra-low carbon RNG per year. The company anticipates the fuel produced at its Trillium Hill site will be used in compressed natural gas vehicles and contribute to the decarbonization of the transportation sector.

“We are grateful for the confidence that Trillium Hill entrusted with us when they chose us as their partner eight months ago,” said Mark Hill, Novilla RNG Co-CEO. “Today, we are delighted to start construction of the facility, showing them the tremendous progress we have made over that short amount of time. Novilla RNG prides itself on its disciplined approach to development and extensive dairy RNG experience which ensure we can stay focused on efficient and timely project execution for the benefit of the dairy.”

“The Novilla Team has more than 40 years of combined experience in renewable and conventional gas processing,” said Bill Parkhurst, director of construction and engineering at Novilla RNG. “This in-house expertise allows us to self-execute on key components of the project rather than outsourcing, lowering our costs and execution time while enabling us to offer more value to the dairy. We expect to be reliably producing RNG in the spring of 2023 at Trillium Hill with several more projects to follow later in 2023.”

Dave Jones, owner of Trillium Hill, commented “As a mid-sized, family-run dairy, the benefits of a dairy RNG project can be transformational for our farm. This project continues the farm’s vision of environmental stewardship while building community relationships and diversifying future energy generation at the local level.”
