Takeaways:

  • In California, cow’s manure from dairy farms will soon flow into big tanks called anaerobic digesters which will capture the methane found in manure.
  • The methane will go into a natural pipeline which is connected to gas pipelines in California and will be used for the state to participate in an emission trading system.
  • The dairy farms will be awarded pollution-reduction credits as a incentive to reduce methane emissions and for delivering a less-polluting fuel that will be used for transportation.
