October 28, 2008, Calgary, Alta. – Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development has made some changes to one of its fact sheets, Integrating Biogas, Confined Feedlot Operations and Ethanol Production.

feedlot02Alberta has many agricultural operations, and all of them generate various types of organic wastes. These organic wastes require proper handling to reduce pollution and contamination. Using anaerobic digesters to process these organic wastes appears to be an attractive option since the anaerobic digestion process can stabilize biologically active organic wastes and produce biogas.

The fact sheet Integrating Biogas, Confined Feedlot Operations and Ethanol Production explores an integrated system consisting of an ethanol manufacturing facility, a confined feedlot operation (CFO) and a biogas plant.
