Bioenergy International: Boosting Manure Based biogas with Straw:
Increasing livestock densities and tougher environmental demands on manure management are compounded by low methane yield from manure-based biogas plants and the ligno-cellulosic nature of straw that makes it elusive to co-digest.

Danish company Kinetic Biofuel A/S has demonstrated a patented straw pre-treatment technology that enables manure-based biogas plants to use straw as co-substrate and over double biogas output.
