Methane Capture on Campus (Proposed)
Following is an email sent by David Rivera-Kohr regarding Biogas on-campus to several faculty and staff at the U of I.
The 2015 iCAP, chapter 6, objective 3, is "Utilize landfills with methane capture." Methane is one of the worst greenhouse gases, and this university has a number of methane producers on South Farms. There are beef cows, dairy cows, sheep, pigs, horses, and chickens. One of the strategies listed in the iCAP to reduce agricultural emissions is to install a methane capture process for additional energy generation by 2020, with a pilot project by 2015. The University will implement a pilot methane capture project at the South Farms by 2015.
