  • California Low Carbon Fuel Standard Carbon Intensity Applied to New York State Dairies 

    Ray, Lauren; Wright, Peter (2022-05)
    The carbon intensity (CI) score is used to appropriately value a unit of transportation fuel under California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) policy. This fact sheet series will cover the CI score related to biomethane, ...
  • Biogas Utilization 

    Ray, Lauren (Dairy Environmental Systems Program, 2021-12)
    Biogas produced from anaerobic digestion at a dairy farm can be utilized in several ways. To date in New York State, biogas has been predominantly utilized to fuel combined heat and power (CHP) systems to produce electricity ...
  • Using Wet Brewers and Wet Distillers Grains on Dairy Farms 

    Chase, L.E. (Dairy Environmental Systems Program, 2021-10)
    Brewers and distillers grains have been used as animal feeds for centuries. Wet brewers (WBG) and wet distillers (WDG) grains may also be available and used as feeds on farms. Using WBG and WDG as animal feed recycles ...
  • Wet Brewers and Wet Distillers Grains in Dairy Cattle Diets 

    Chase, L.E. (Dairy Environmental Systems Program, 2021-10)
    Brewers and distillers grains have been used as animal feeds for centuries. Brewers grain is a co-product of brewing beer. Distillers grains are a co-product of ethanol production. The commercial feed industry routinely ...
  • How Food Waste Contributes to Greenhouse Gases 

    Sharpsteen, Eric; Wright, Peter (Dairy Environmental Systems Program, 2021-08)
    It is estimated that one-third of all food produced in the world each year for human consumption never reaches the table. This leads to increased greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the food that is not consumed by the ...
  • Farm Safety - Manure Handling 

    Terry, Timothy; Wright, Peter (Dairy Environmental Systems Program, 2021-06)
    Dairy manure storage is a nutrient efficient and environmentally friendly way to allow recycling of the manure by field application during the growing season. During storage, bacteria and other anaerobic processes breakdown ...
  • Part 5: Biofilter media management considerations 

    Oliver, Jason; Gooch, Curt (2016-09)
    Biofilter performance is directly tied to media management that in turn governs both air flow and microbial activity. At start-up, biofilter media must be managed for the establishment of a robust, targeted contaminant-degrading ...
  • Part 4: Biofilter design information 

    Oliver, Jason; Gooch, Curt (2016-09)
    Design flexibility and the capability to operate across a range of conditions makes biofilters suitable for point-source gaseous emissions from dairies.
  • Part 3: Basics of biofiltration 

    Oliver, Jason; Gooch, Curt (2016-09)
    Biofiltration is a low-cost, robust mitigation technology applicable to various agricultural emissions. Biofilters are essentially a pile of wood chips, mulch, compost or other porous, typically organic, media and its ...
  • Part 2: Applicability of biofilters to dairy point-source emissions 

    Oliver, Jason; Gooch, Curt (2016-09)
    Point-source gaseous emissions from dairies contain complex mixtures of contaminants in ranging concentrations emitted at various flow rates. While most air pollution control technologies have optimal application limits, ...
