Manure Management and Algal Nutrient Removal Impacts on Swine Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Algal Nutrient Removal

Dr. Marty Matlock and Dr. Thomas Costello – University of Arkansas

Sub-Project Overview

Algal biomass offers many advantages over traditional energy crops; algal biomass generates higher yields and requires smaller land area than other energy crops. In addition to biomass production for potential biofuel feedstock generation, algal growth systems can also act as tertiary treatment systems for wastewater.…

Thermal Conversion of Animal Manure to Biofuel

Continued advances in technology have facilitated new avenues to access and extract energy (in various forms) from materials such as animal manure and crop residues that have not traditionally been considered viable fuel sources. This presentation discusses the use of thermochemical processes, including gasification, to produce biofuels from animal manure and was originally broadcast on February 28, 2014.…
