Anaerobic digestion

Learn about the benefits of anaerobic digestion and how it can turn organic waste into valuable resources. Explore the process of anaerobic digestion and discover how it can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create renewable energy.
Anaerobic digestion uses micro-organisms to break down organic materials – such as farm manure – in an air-tight, oxygen-free tank (called a digester). The hungry micro-organisms munch on the organic matter, and as they digest it, they produce methane and carbon dioxide gas. That’s why it is called “anaerobic digestion.”
