Quantifying Fugitive Emissions from Biodigesters



Agricultural biodigesters reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions & generate clean energy. GHG reduction depends on many factors
(design, feedstock, etc.), including the amount of fugitive CH4 emissions. Quantifying fugitive emissions is difficult -- commonly

  • 15% of total CH4 production (California Climate Action Registry )
  • 15% of production (CDM 2005); 10% of production (IPCC 2006)
  • 5% of production (EPA – for covered anaerobic lagoons)

Study Objective

Quantify fugitive emissions from a modern biodigester in western Canada.
