After leading RCM’s sales effort in European and Asia, Jim Muir decided to approach the Northeast portion of the USA.
The American market requires face to face contact with farmers and developers. With dangerously low milk prices “digesters” can provide revenue streams that can save struggling farms.
For RCM Digesters Muir was able to sign contracts with four farms in southern New England in late 2016 and early 2017 expected to total $14 million. One launched in Connecticut was the state’s first modern agricultural digester and the second is under development. The two already launched in Massachusetts are among the first six digesters there.
Update: Late in 2016 RCM was taken over and upper management replaced. However, Muir moved up to assisting PlanET Biogas. PlanET is a well-established German based company that has built over 550 digester systems worldwide. Today, Agricultural Digesters LLC has advantageous relationships with several leading technology providers, but is independent and can recommend the best “fit” for your farm.
