Farm Waste to Energy

Farm waste can include crop waste but mostly includes livestock manure, which in the USA is measured in millions of tons per day and it is a significant and growing problem. As the organic waste is typically moved to football field size lagoons it settles to the bottom where it decomposes and emits vast amounts of methane and carbon dioxide, both of which are potent greenhouse gases. 

We can intercept the waste, extract the energy in it via several methods as combustible gases. These gases can either be refined to pipeline quality and injected into the grid, converted to electricity or converted to liquid fuels.

This eliminates the waste which is healthier for animals and humans alike, plus it gives us an untapped source of energy to use instead of fossil fuels... helping the environment even further.
