The Potential of Anaerobic Digestion for increased Sustainability and Energy Production at Auburn University
Recent studies at Auburn University suggest the potential to reduce campus environmental impact by the diversion of organic waste to dry anaerobic digestion. Known available feedstocks were assessed, and the potential energy production, green house gas reductions, and annual economic savings were approximated to be 2,830 MWh per year under thermophilic conditions, 1,840 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent green house gases, and cost savings of $181,000, respectively.
