Anaerobic digestion centered within a system of complementary technologies transforms organic waste from an environmental concern into an environmental, economic, and social solution.
Come learn from WSU researchers and their partners about the newest developments in commercializing anaerobic digestion (AD) system on dairy farms in the Pacific Northwest. Featured efforts include the development of technology for extracting nutrients from manure, use of manure-derived soil amendment, mitigating atmospheric emissions and water quality concerns, producing renewable energy, and more.
