When the new system is running, manure will be pumped into a storage container like this one along with liquid food waste from food-processing plants. It will then be pumped into the digester (with the black dome). This feedstock tank can hold 50,000 gallons and the digester tank can hold 500,000 gallons. The farm expects to have other storage tanks as the farm produces 10,000 gallons of manure a day.
