A dairy group says proposed cuts to tax incentives for manure digesters would bring uncertainty to the on-farm renewable natural gas producers.

Laurie Fischer with the American Dairy Coalition tells Brownfield a group of Senators wants to eliminate the Inflation Reduction Act’s tax credits for manure digesters making renewable natural gas. “They don’t want to necessarily give carbon credits or lower the score for farmers because they’re changing livestock manure into renewable natural gas.”

The letter to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and Climate Counselor Ethan Zindler says the V45 provision of the Inflation Reduction Act was to promote clean production of hydrogen with electrolyzers.
