July 16, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
On-farm anaerobic digestion (AD) is a great way to process manure and other organics. Understanding the details about how to make it all work is vital to its success.

AgSTAR’s Handbook includes:
• Process Fundamentals
• Digester Feedstocks
• AD/Biogas System Products, Equipment and Uses
• Economic and Financial Factors
• Screening and Feasibility Studies
• Business Relationships
• Public and Community Outreach
• Safety, Operation, and Maintenance Considerations
• Additional Tools and Resources
