Anaerobic digesters are used worldwide to produce energy and to treat organic materials such as municipal waste, food processing residues, and manures. Government, industry, environmental and agricultural stakeholders are interested in anaerobic digestion (AD) systems because of their multitude of benefits: they can reduce greenhouse gases, improve air quality, protect water quality, recover nutrients, and improve farm economics while generating a steady, predictable supply of renewable energy.
This is a series of five free webinars with Washington State University researchers and their collaborators sharing findings as they strive to quantify the climate, air, water, nutrient and economic impacts of integrating emerging, next-generation technologies within anaerobic digestion systems on U.S. dairies.
