Cogeneration for Feedlots

Cogeneration for Feedlots

Using biomass energy in a feedlot

Reducing energy costs is a priority for many in the pig production industry with skyrocketing electricity, gas, and fuel prices ever on the increase. Biogas power generation presents a practical cost-effective alternative to mains electricity, while significantly reducing your farm’s greenhouse gas emissions, potentially by up to 80%.
