GLRPPR Sector Resource: Food Waste Case Study: Link Energy Biodigester

Title:
Food Waste Case Study: Link Energy Biodigester

Abstract:
Trent Linkenmeyer is the owner and operator of Link Energy in Riceville, Iowa. Link Energy is a family owned and operated farm that recently added a state-of-the-art biodigester. Their reasons for adding this 2,000,000 gallon giant are numerous. The family wanted a better controlled system to handle their farm and livestock waste in an environmentally friendly manner. Also, adding the biodigester to their farm operation would provide added income while accommodating a more community friendly operation. Finally, the added tax incentives and funding options were pivotal to the decision to go forward with building the biodigester. The Linkenmeyer family visited other farms with digesters to learn how to operate the massive giants prior to setting up their own
