Biofiltration of greenhouse gases from a swine liquid manure storage by an active composting process
Authors: Choinière, Y.
Description: Liquid manure storage for swine production emits greenhouse gases. Manure storage is roofed with a floating cover equipped with gas piping. The gases are filtered by a dead animal active composting rotating drum. The innovations are related to the biofiltration with a thermophilic composting process. It is anticipated that the CH4 will be consumed by the methanotroph bacteria and, potentially, could help to reduce the wood chip requirements.
