Biochemical Methane Potential for Wheat-Based Fuel Ethanol and Beef Feedlot Integration

Authors: Fonstad, T., H. Annand, D. Pratt, and T. Dumonceaux
Description: This study consisted of conducting biochemical methane potential (BMP) assays at thermophilic temperatures on ethanol byproducts typically produced downstream of distillation in wheat-based ethanol facilities. One experiment focused on the methane potential of the byproducts alone and two more experiments focused on the effect of amending the highest potential byproducts with feedlot manure at 1:1 and 2:1 (VS ratio) of byproduct to manure. Methane yields for whole stillage, thin stillage and wet cake were 585
