Cannon Builders is always pursuing new opportunities. One of these opportunities is the construction of anaerobic dairy digesters. Anaerobic digesters are used as a source of renewable methane gas or electricity through the production of biogas. The digesters also serve a key role in the waste management plan of the dairy.
The digester facilities consist of several large steel tanks encapsulated in a pre-engineered steel building. The manure from the dairies is pumped into the tanks to facilitate the biogas production. Cannon was excited to be involved in the construction of several of the first digesters built in Idaho. Cannon believes this technology has a great future.
