Researchers from Israel and Florida awarded funding for biogas

Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel and University of Florida researchers have been awarded a United States-Israel Bi-national Agricultural Research and Development Fund (BARD) grant to improve the production of biogas that supplies farms’ energy needs.

The goal of this project is to design guidelines for improved anaerobic digesters (biogas systems) for treatment in a wide variety of biomass feedstocks. Such digester designs will eliminate operational problems and enhance the use of a wide range of nutrient-rich feedstocks, thereby increasing farm revenues.
