Generating methane gas from manure
At first glance, the idea of generating methane gas has considerable merit because it appears to offer at least a partial solution to two pressing problems -- the environmental crisis and the energy shortage.

This Guide is intended to provide quantitative information so that the feasibility of methane generation can be evaluated for a given situation.
