Manure Technology and Biogas

Biogas is regarded as one of the most cost effective environmental technologies for production of bioenergy and abatement of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from livestock production.

The research is focused on advanced technologies for improving the biogas production. This includes optimization of the biogas potential and improvement of methods such as pre-treatment, high technology separation of nutrients, thermal conversion of the residual fibers after digestion, high solid digester technology and upgrading of biogas to vehicle fuel or natural gas quality.
