Since organic waste contains methane, it can be added to the digester to increase the volume and potential of this renewable resource. In fact, in a study done by East Bay Municipal Utility District it was revealed that food waste has up to fifteen times as much potential for energy creation as manure.
Working with dairy farmers, retailers, investors and digester project developers, the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy has developed a business model that puts this concept to work and can help achieve our Dairy Power goal to put 1300 more digesters on dairy farms by 2020.
In the video above, Dr. Jason Clay, Senior Vice President at World Wildlife Fund, talks about the importance of using the expertise of every farmer in order to feed our future population in an effective and sustainable way.
