Resource assessment for livestock and agro-industrial wastes - India

As part of the Global Methane Initiative, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) is conducting a livestock and agro-industry resource assessment (RA) in India to identify and describe the potential for incorporating anaerobic digestion into livestock manure and agro-industrial (agricultural commodity processing) waste management systems to reduce methane emissions and provide a renewable source of energy. The sectors deemed to have the greatest potential for methane emission reductions are: dairy cattle, sugar and distilleries, fruit and vegetables, corn and cornstarch, and cassava starch (tapioca).
