Biofiltration for mitigating methane emission from covered hog manure storage:

Preliminary phase of designing and testing a biofiltration system for removing greenhouse gas emissions from covered hog manure storage


Team:

Q. Huang, Qiang Zhang, Nazim Cicek, Danny Mann, Dept. Biosystems Engineering

Objective:

This project is the preliminary phase of designing and testing biofiltration systems for removing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from covered hog manure storage. The specific objectives of this phase are: (1) to conduct a thorough literature search to compile information on the use of biofilters in mitigating GHG emissions from livestock operations; and (2) to assess the technical feasibility of using biofilters in mitigating GHG emissions from covered hog manure storage based on the literature review; and (3) to conceptualize a biofiltration system design for covered hog manure storage typical in Manitoba.
