Wednesday, June 1, 2016

Stephanie Lansing presents information on current research, available technologies, future possibilities, and the benefits and costs of small-scale manure digesters.

Deb Yocum provides info about eligibility for the USDA REAP program, application deadlines, program grant and loan opportunities and how existing digesters used REAP as part of their funding package.

Landfill Gas

Landfill gas is piped from the nearby landfill to the power station where it is burned in engines to generate electricity. Impurities in the gas must be filtered out so they don't clog catalytic filters on the engine. This generator is a 1.6 MW generator. This power station is in Lincoln Nebraska. Landfill gas is mostly methane (~60%) carbon dioxide and other impurities.
