On Oct. 24, 2019, farmers, research scientists and government representatives from Denmark and California are hosting a webinar about anaerobic digestion and renewable natural gas (RNG).

Anaerobic digestion and RNG are trendy topics as farmers and ranchers around the world look into developing new, innovative agricultural practices that mitigate climate change. Dairy digesters, which capture on-the-farm methane from cow manure and send it via underground pipeline for energy production, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and produce energy. Not only do they provide environmental benefits, but digesters also offer a potential new revenue stream for the farmers.

To foster a better understanding of dairy digesters and their role in climate smart agriculture on a global level, the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Office of Environmental Farming and Innovation is collaborating with Denmark to host a webinar titled, “Environmental and Economic Importance of Anaerobic Digestion and Renewable Natural Gas.”

The free event will be held on October 24, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. PDT (12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. EDT) and those interested can register online.

This webinar is the eleventh in a series of international discussions focusing on climate smart agriculture hosted by California’s Department of Food and Agriculture’s Office of Environmental Farming and Innovation. A previous webinar looked at alternative manure management practices and was a collaboration with experts from The Netherlands.
