Washington County Community Feasibility Study

The Feasibility Study that evaluated a community-based manure treatment system for an identified area of the County where nearly 5,000 milking cows exist a few miles apart is now available.  Dynamic Renewables Inc. completed the feasibility study for the County that evaluated emerging technologies including anaerobic digestion, nutrient recovery systems, and treatment technologies that produce renewable energy, mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, reduce odor and pathogens, recover a significant fraction of fiber in manure solids, and remove nitrogen/phosphorus in the waste stream.  Cluster or community-based digester and manure treatment is not a new concept, as there can be significant economies of scale benefits engaging multi-farm operations that are close to one another.  The study was made possible by a grant from the Fund for Lake Michigan.
