Covered anaerobic lagoon systems offer the potential to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and provide sustainable energy. The monitoring program completed at the George Weston Foods owned Bears Lagoon piggery is the first comprehensive set of data on the performance of a covered anaerobic lagoon at a piggery in Australia.
As a result of determining monthly methane yields, the work demonstrates the significant power generation potential from piggeries and that a large operation such as Bears Lagoon piggery could power approximately 270 households.
