Research Project: Nutrient Status and Runoff Potential from Animal Manures after Anaerobic Digestion

Location: National Soil Erosion Research Lab

Project Number: 3602-12130-001-13
Project Type: Interagency Reimbursable Agreement

Start Date: Mar 01, 2013
End Date: Feb 18, 2017

Objective:
Synthesis of the nutrient recovery from anaerobic digestion of animal manures and evaluation of nutrient runoff potential from land application of digester effluents.

Approach:
Compilation of existing information regarding to nutrient recovery from anaerobic digesters; quantify the nutrient status and improve the digestion process to maximize nutrient recovery; using rainfall simulation to quantify nutrient runoff potential from land application of digester effluents.
