Tools and calculators
Reports and tools for calculating the biogas that can be obtained from:
- Biomass decision support tool (July 2013) - Find the most cost effective size and integration approach for a biomass heating system with the biomass system decision support tool.
- Piggery waste - Effluent or manure from pigs in piggeries can be converted into biogas (a renewable energy source consisting mostly of methane and carbon dioxide), liquid fuel and/or nutrient-rich solids.
- Renewable energy (piggeries) - Unlike other livestock industries or international pork production the majority of our emissions come from the effluent treatment system on farm. This offers the industry a fantastic opportunity to significantly reduce our greenhouse emissions.
- Feedlot waste (cattle) - Manure from feedlot cattle or pigs can be converted into biogas (a renewable energy source consisting mostly of methane and carbon dioxide), liquid fuel and/or nutrient-rich solids. Biogas can be burnt to generate electricity and heat, upgraded into a transport fuel (biomethane) and can yield other useful products.
- Poultry litter - Spent poultry litter—a mix of excreted manure, water, spilled feed, feathers and bedding material—can be converted into biogas (a renewable energy source consisting mostly of methane and carbon dioxide).
- Meat processing facility - Taking an ‘outside in’ approach to how we do things is essential to our progress. We play in a global market place and the direction we take, now more than ever, is relevant to what’s happening outside our world of manufacturing.
- Meat processing fact sheet (sustainability) - AMPC’s objective is to maximise the efficiency and viability of the red meat processing sector by supporting the development of sound, scientific solutions that will enhance the sustainability 'A Feast of Ideas' of the industry.
