This investigation applied the anaerobic process to the production of methane gas and a stabilized sludge from cow manure and farm clippings in laboratory pilot plants as well as a full-scale (2,000 gal.) digester system. The quantity and quality of gas produced, the biochemical and chemical oxygen demands, and the nutritional value of the digested sludge for both the laboratory and full-scale plants were evaluated.
