From the article:

Building off its history of growth in Pennsylvania’s Sugar Valley, Nicholas Meat LLC is building its Sustainable Resource Facility (SRF), which will dramatically reduce water use for the company’s beef processing operations while generating renewable energy in the form of biogas.

SRF construction, which began in May 2021, is taking place on a 41-acre site directly across the two-lane road from Nicholas Meat’s plant, which began as a 5-acre site that has grown to 26 acres for Nicholas Meat’s processing operations and cattle holding areas.
