In this webinar, presented by Cornell CALS PRO-DAIRY, attendees will learn about the carbon accounting of dairy manure anaerobic digestion (AD) to renewable natural gas (RNG) systems that are being implemented in New York through California's Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS). The presentation will cover ways to improve the Carbon Intensity score of these systems, including a case study on the economic analysis of an impermeable cover system on a digestate effluent storage pond. The webinar will also discuss considerations for multi-farm, centralized systems of either manure or biogas, and will include a Q&A session. This webinar is recommended for dairy farmers, their advisors, and agency representatives.
