The construction, operation, and feasibility of an anaerobic digestion plant are discussed. All aspects of the anaerobic digestion process are examined and its ability to produce and sell fertilizer and various forms of energy are evaluated. It has been determined that the facility can generate revenues of around 10 million dollars annually from fertilizer sales with a two percent market capture. Energy sales will surpass that of fertilizer sales, although the regulations and methods for delivery have yet to be studied.
