AgSTAR's Market Opportunities for Biogas Recovery Systems at U.S. Livestock Facilitities report assesses the market potential for biogas energy projects at swine and dairy farms in the United States, including details on the methodology and sample calculations. For the top ten swine and dairy states, the guide characterizes the sizes and types of operations where biogas projects are technically feasible, along with estimates of potential methane production, electricity generation and greenhouse gas emission reductions.
For a quick summary of the potential, refer to AgSTAR's fact sheet on the Market Opportunities for Biogas Recovery Systems that identifies the top 10 states for energy generation potential from dairy and swine manure biogas recovery systems.You may need Adobe Reader to view files on this page.
