Learn How to Turn Waste into Energy Nov. 9 and 19

Want to know how to turn manure, crop residue, food-processing waste and other organic materials into biogas, electricity and even transportation fuels? Then plan on attending one of two workshops that will be offered Nov. 9 and 19 on the Wooster campus of the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC).

The free workshops are intended for farmers, businesses, communities or individuals interested in learning about anaerobic digestion — a process that converts biomass to methane, which can then be employed as a source of thermal heat, turned into electricity or compressed to fuel vehicles.

Sponsored by Ohio State University Extension, the Ohio BioProducts Innovation Center (OBIC) and quasar energy group, the workshops will be held from 9:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Shisler Conference Center, 1680 Madison Ave., Wooster. A tour of quasar’s flagship anaerobic digestion facility on the OARDC campus will be part of the program.
