ABSTRACT
The article reports that the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh (UWO) increase the revenue potential of industrial scale dry fermentation anaerobic digester (AD). According to Brian Langolf, UWO's director of biogas systems, digester takes in food scraps, yard trimmings and farm residue including bedding, straw, crops and manure. It states that UWO launched Titan Gold, an organic compost product sales will go to student activities including scholarships and employment.
