Disposal of manure poses serious environmental problems for Michigan. Anaerobic digestion is one method of resolving environmental problems, as a means of economically re-using an otherwise wasted resource

Though the technology of anaerobic digesters for treating manure has been around a long time, few Michigan farmers have successfully used this technology. These failures became barriers rather than lessons learned about what would improve the technology and make it more effective in Michigan.

There is a system that is working in Wisconsin, New York and Indiana, states with similar conditions to Michigan. Examining these successful systems and comparing them to Michigan's previous failures will provide information useful to farmers considering manure handling methods and be helpful to regulators in their duties of guidance to farmers when enforcing regulations.
