Enhancing hydraulic performance of a multi-stage anaerobic digester for high solids cattle manure
Anaerobic digestion is an attractive technology for waste handling because it converts low value waste material into energy and other useful products while performing necessary treatment for proper waste disposal. Conventional anaerobic digestion technology, however, has been met with many economic challenges when being applied to high solids substrate such as dry-lot cattle manure. In Colorado and the rest of the arid west, feedlot practices and dry climate combine to form a waste product that is very high in total solids (TS) content, from 50% up to 90% TS. Since the most common conventional ...
