How large does a farm need to be to support a biogas digester?
Digesters are available in a variety of sizes and can support any size farm. The smallest of these are “home” digesters, which are easily installed, inexpensive, and capable of processing light quantities of food and animal waste. These digesters are available from several agriculture supply retailers.
At the other end of the scale, industrial digesters are specially engineered and constructed to process manure from large, commercial farm operations. Design and construction may require up to two years and substantial capital investment. If a farm is too small to substantiate such investment, they may be able to participate in the operation of a nearby digester by selling its manure to the digester operator.
