Anaerobic Digesters: What They Are & What They Do

Anaerobic digesters use a biological process used to manage some type of waste (like sewage, cow, pig, or chicken manure) and to produce a gas called “biogas”. Biogas is primarily composed of methane and carbon dioxide and depending on the waste feedstock and the system design is typically 55 to 75 percent pure methane (with…
