There is no better way to appreciate the ability of our products to make sustainable progress possible than when they are at work for our customers. A Cat® gas generator set used for converting methane from manure into electrical power in one of the largest dairy farms in Wisconsin was recently featured in an article by the New York Times. By using the methane gas produced from cattle manure to fuel Cat gas generator sets, our customers are able to keep greenhouse gasses out of the atmosphere and protect the environment from climate change.
