Anaerobic Digestion for Energy Generation & Greenhouse Gas Reduction Hardback
Edited by Samuel D Rockland
Anaerobic digestion technology may help to address two congressional concerns that have some measure of interdependence: development of clean energy sources and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
Anaerobic digestion technology breaks down a feedstock, usually manure from livestock operations, to produce a variety of outputs including methane.
An anaerobic digestion system may reduce greenhouse gas emissions because it captures the methane from manure that might otherwise be released into the atmosphere as a potent greenhouse gas.
This book provides information on anaerobic digestion systems, technology adoption, challenges to widespread implementation, and policy interventions that could affect adoption of the technology.
