Join AgSTAR and the Penn State Cooperative Extension for a one-day event focusing on biogas recovery opportunities utilizing anaerobic digestion in the Chesapeake Bay region. The event will be held Dec. 2 at the Farm and Home Center in Lancaster, Pa.

Producers will learn about successful digester systems on small to medium operations, as well as important considerations when evaluating the potential for community digesters. The event will also focus on the prospects for revenue from energy generation, nutrient value, fiber recovery, and carbon credits; including examples of these successful ventures on local farms. Following the presentations, participants have the choice of visiting either Oregon Dairy or Brubaker’s Dairy to see how these producers are realizing their digesters’ potentials.

Limited opportunities are available for exhibiting at the event. Before leaving, sign-up to receive a free pre-feasibility assessment for a manure digester with biogas recovery at your operation.

The registration fee ($15 early bird for registrations received by Nov. 22, $20 for registrations received on or after Nov. 22) includes all presentations, choice of tour location, coffee and a box lunch.

More information regarding the event, exhibit opportunities, and to obtain a registration form is available here. Limited on-site registration may be available the day of the event, but space is not guaranteed.
