Manure storage impermeable cover and flare systems – Potential climate benefits and considerations

Other Titles
Abstract
Cover and flare systems are suitable for dairy farms of all herd sizes and can help mitigate methane and other emissions while improving climate resiliency. Impermeable covers are gas-tight plastic membranes installed over the surface of a suitable manure storage structure to capture emissions and exclude rainwater. Biogas collected from under the cover can be combusted in a flare to reduce the potent greenhouse gas, methane, and to lessen potent carbon dioxide. Rainwater can be temporarily stored on the cover and used on-farm or pumped into an appropriate vegetated area.
