  •  What about pig, poultry etc farms? (0+ / 0-)

    why is pig poop still pumped into ponds?

    Digesters, farms can use methane to generate power, sure thats Co2, but is it wise to let the methane go free?

    •  Not much carbon is aqueous CAFO waste (1+ / 0-)

      Liquid CAFO waste is typically less than about 7-8% solids.  It will produce gas but not that much.   At most CAFOs there is a great deal of effort taken to separate out solids from wastewater as part of the nutrient management system.   The solids are returned to the soil as part of the nutrient management system.

      Cold weather is also an impediment to bio-methane production.
