Enhancing anaerobic digestion biogas analysis capabilities at UW–Platteville

PI: Joseph Sanford

Sanford is an assistant professor in the School of Agriculture at UW–Platteville. His research interest is in agriculture wastewater management including management of farmstead and edge of field runoff, nutrient management, precision manure application, water recovery and recycling, pathogen inactivation and transport, and emerging agricultural contaminates such as PFAS. His position is funded by the Dairy Innovation Hub.

Sanford’s project will use a gas chromatography system to analyze biogas samples from livestock systems, including O2, N2, CH4, and CO2, for anaerobic digestion research. This will expand current and future anaerobic digestion research capabilities at UW–Platteville.
