Anaerobic Digestion (AD) on the Farm

AD of cattle manure avoids methane and nitrous oxide emissions from manure storage ~12% of agricultural GHG emissions in Ireland

Additional carbon credits come from improved manure management resulting in GHG savings (Total GHG savings up to 239% c.f. natural gas)

Multiple options to achieve 100% GHG savings by co-digestion with manure e.g.

100% GHG savings from an AD feedstock mixture of 50% biowaste and 50% manure
