New Method Converts Manure to Biogas at Half the Cost

One of the key pieces in building systems that are more sustainable is the idea of using waste as a resource, especially those waste products that aren’t avoidable. It’s one thing to reduce the amount of waste that gets produced from processes, but if there really isn’t a way to reduce that waste, which is the case when it comes to animal manure, then being able to convert it into clean energy is the next best thing. Biogas isn’t a…
