Powering up with centralized biodigesters for dairy farms (USA)

12/7/2012

California's dairy farms possess a valuable resource — manure — that can be turned into electricity, benefiting both farmers and the environment. About 1,900 dairy farms dot the landscape in California, with millions of cows producing both milk and manure. Biodigesters, which produce gas from manure, offer a number of potential benefits: They generate energy, decrease greenhouse gases, reduce odors, improve water and air quality, and provide additional financial security for dairy farmers.
