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. The webinar featured EPA’s AgSTAR Anaerobic Digestion Project Development Handbook, a new resource that outlines the details of setting up and operating an on-farm AD system. 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
• Permitting
• Public and Community Outreach
• Safety, Operation, and Maintenance Considerations
• Additional Tools and Resources

Webinar Presenters:
Vanessa McKinney is the Program Manager for EPA’s AgSTAR Program, where she works with U.S. livestock, biogas and government stakeholders to advance the deployment of digesters and biogas systems. She has over a decade of experience in energy efficiency, renewable energy and air emissions regulation and policy.
