Biogas potential from slurry decreases at a rate of 30 per cent per month

5/8/2014

It was already known that slurry needs to be fresh in order to ensure maximum biogas yields. Now the biogas potential of fresh manure is also known. To get as much biogas as possible per cubic metre of manure, the manure needs to be transported from the stall to the fermentation plant as soon as possible. The air quality in the stall then improves because lengthy storage of the manure under the floor is no longer needed. Capturing and burning as much biogas as possible in a gas engine leads to a reduction in the emissions of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas (more than 20 times more powerful than CO2), and enables the production of green electricity and heat. Biogas potential from slurry decreases at a rate of 30 per cent per month.
