An AgSTAR Partner Celebrates National Bioenergy Day
On October 22, 2014, events were held across the country to recognize National Bioenergy Day, a nationwide day of promoting the heat and power generated by agricultural waste and woody biomass. Bioenergy facilities and universities hosted events to demonstrate to communities the benefits of bioenergy for local use. An AgSTAR Partner, the Kentucky Department of Energy Development and Independence, participated in activities at Murray State University (MSU), which featured keynote speakers; the official lighting of MSU’s bio burner; and breakout sessions on the topics of livestock energy, biomass logistics and markets, and government assistance programs. Attendees learned about the basics of anaerobic digestion (AD), including:
- Farm biogas system schematics and types of AD systems
- Gas use devices and digester byproducts
- Potential gas production for swine, dairy and poultry projects
Visit the National Bioenergy Day website for more information on this year’s event.
