A bill passed in 2012 transferred responsibility for animal waste management technology projects to the Maryland Department of Agriculture. The Department will maintain the Animal Waste Technology Fund, which provides funding opportunities for the research, development, implementation, and market development of technology intended to (a) reduce the amount of nutrients in animal waste, (b) alter the composition of animal waste, (c) develop alternative waste management strategies, or (d) use animal waste in a production process. Funds may be granted to individuals or businesses.
