Possibilities for capitalizing on organic matter from livestock farms

Abstract


Today, as global energy demand continues to grow and global warming measures tighten, renewable energy has come to the fore. Governments' support for renewable energy has also increased, mainly due to efforts to reduce CO2 emissions and diversify energy sources. These incentives, along with high fossil fuel prices, have persuaded many investors to turn to renewable energy. Biomass is the most abundant renewable resource on the planet, including absolutely all the organic matter produced by the metabolic processes of living organisms. This paper presents the possibilities for capitalizing on organic matter from livestock farms, with an emphasis on the production of biogas from biomass resulting from animal manure. An example of calculating the amount of biogas is also made.


Keywords
