Actually it's very proven technology. Cat has a huge presence in this technology and your local industrial dealer should be able to help you. If your in the midwest (MN.IA,westeren IL, and the eastern Dakotas/Nr) Thats Ziegler in Shakopee or Des Moines. As for hogs it can be done but it takes 900 animal units to produce about 400Kw. (1 animal unit = 900lbs) in other words it takes a whole bunch of pig *^**! Martin County in MN has a huge number of swine operations but the cost to move waste to the digester site prohibits the project. As does the cost of a bunch of seperate units.
The very best use for Animal Waste digester generation is on a big dairy.The waste is kept in a localized site, once the digester has finished it's process the material is sent to a screw press and the liquid is removed and used as a ferrilizer grade nitrogen and the dry material is used as bedding. Everything is kept in one loop with no chance of contamination from multiple waste sources.

If you have not found a solution yet, let me know how to reach you.
We provide EPC for biogas projects and had designed systems with pig heads as high as 200,000 average daily population...
