Abstract

This report explores the current state of urban agriculture in the United States, the benefits of anaerobic digestion as a renewable energy source, and the potential for biogas capture at a farm, Nuestro Huerto, a small urban farm in Worcester Massachusetts. Gas handling systems are investigated, and a design is proposed for compressing and storing evolved gases from the Nuestro Huerto digester.
