The increased costs of energy and the potential greater prices paid for renewable energy is making methane capture from animal manures more economically feasible. With a better understanding of the manure production rates and the economically feasible size of these industries, a greater uptake of the existing technology to recover energy from these intensive animal industries will occur.
This RIRDC project aimed to provide independent estimations of waste production using available methods and models.
