Everyone’s focus seems to be on reducing carbon dioxide emissions these days, to combat global warming. But turning animal waste to energy could turn millions of pounds of cow manure and other animal waste into a renewable energy source. Animal waste that is currently releasing nitrous oxide – a GHG that warms the atmosphere over 300 times more than carbon dioxide.

An anaerobic digester takes animal waste and turns it into energy, such as nitrous oxide and methane which can be burned as fuel to produce electricity with the help of a turbine generator.

Science Daily writes more on animal waste to energy in their article, Cow Power Could Generate Electricity for Millions.
