As part of its “manure-to-energy” project, Smithfield Foods Inc. announced on Aug. 5 that it connected a low-pressure natural gas transmission line from a company hog farm to the Milan, Missouri, natural gas pipeline.

Smithfield said that the renewable natural gas produced at the hog farm goes directly into the city’s natural gas distribution system prior to delivery.
