Title: A comparison of dairy cattle manure management with and without anaerobic digestion and biogas utilization
Primary Authors: Martin, John H. Jr.

Abstract: This report summarizes the results from one of a series of studies designed to: 1) more fully characterize and quantify the protection of air and water quality provided by waste management systems currently used in the swine and dairy industries and 2) delineate associated costs. The overall objective of this effort is to develop a better understanding of: 1) the potential of individual system components and combinations of these components to ameliorate the impacts of swine and dairy cattle manures on environmental quality and 2) the relationships between design and operating parameters and the performance of the biological and physical/chemical processes involved. A clear understanding of both is essential for the rational planning and design of these waste management systems.
