As of January 2015, AgSTAR estimates that there are approximately 247 anaerobic digester systems operating at commercial livestock farms in the United States. The AgSTAR database provides more detailed information about operating projects.
Farm Project Profiles
Anaerobic digester systems can be installed successfully at operations that collect manure as a liquid, slurry, or semi-solid. Existing farms use a variety of different types of digester designs and energy use technologies. Details about operating projects can be reviewed by clicking on a map marker in the above map or the full list of operating projects is available below. In-depth profiles of select projects are available here.

The Excel spreadsheet below provides basic information for anaerobic digester systems in the United States. The spreadsheet has multiple tabs to show the following:
- Operational Digesters and Digesters Under Construction
- Shut Down Projects
- Operational Beef Projects
- Operational Dairy Projects
- Operational Poultry Projects
- Operational Swine Projects
- Count of Operational Projects by Animal Type
These data were compiled from a variety of sources. AgSTAR cannot guarantee the accuracy of these data. AgSTAR encourages farm operators, project developers, financers, and others involved in the development of farm digester projects to provide updates and corrections to these data by contacting AgSTAR.
