The Biogas and Anaerobic Digestion website (http://www.biogas.psu.edu/) provides an excellent delivery method to satisfy the need for educational material on production of biogas from animal manures and other agricultural and organic wastes. With minimal resources the group identified, classified and when necessary developed a wide array of web based materials. The goal was to present a comprehensive source of biogas resources. Brief introductory sections and annotations were developed when necessary. To emphasize safety issues involved with handling biologically active materials and flammable gases safety alerts are strategically placed through out the site. Information on Pennsylvania systems and projects are being developed for the site.
