On-farm biogas systems use anaerobic digestion (AD) to recycle livestock manure and crop residue. This process produces biogas, which creates environmental and business opportunities for the farm.
AD recovers valuable resources from organic matter, transforming waste into green energy and value-added products.
AD enables reuse of nutrients and even animal bedding, reducing a farm’s environmental footprint and input costs.
AD creates a renewable source of energy (heat, electricity and natural gas) that can be used on-farm or sold to utilities to diversify a farm’s income.
The Canadian Biogas Association is the source to connect you with information and expertise to get your farm started with biogas.Contact Us
