Poop power: Learn about anaerobic digestion systems during Field Day

Jun 1st, 2016 | Category: News

LYNDEN – WSU’s Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources presents a day-long event Thursday, June 9 to learn about anaerobic digestion and nutrient recovery. Participating dairy farms during this field day are Edaleen Dairy and Honcoop Farms. Together with WSU researchers, they will discuss anaerobic digestion and nutrient recovery, and the lessons they’ve learned over the past three years, including: fine solids recovery; advanced nutrient recovery approaches; nutrient recovery products and their agronomic use; water quality and food safety issues; economics; and the potential for integration of biochar with AD systems. Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a biological process that breaks down materials in the absence of oxygen, resulting in solid and liquid products, and biogas. Together with nutrient recovery and other complimentary technologies, this process can provide environmental, economic and social benefits while managing organic waste. The event is free but registration is required to ensure ample lunch and bus transportation. Please register at http://csanr.wsu.edu/ad-field-day/. For questions or more information contact Brooke Saari at brooke.saari@wsu.edu. Parking is available at Mt. Baker Rotary Building, NW WA Fair & Event Center, at 1775 Front Street in Lynden. The event runs 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
