Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
'Cow power' turns manure, food waste into mighty electricity source
Kennebec Journal - 1/19/2013.
By Ben McCanna - Exeter: Every day in rural Penobscot County, a large dairy farm harnesses clean-burning gas from cow manure and food waste, and generates enough electricity to power 800 homes continuously. The process has the potential to earn the facility $800,000 a year. It also creates byproducts - animal bedding and a less-odorous fertilizer - that save the farm about $100,000 a year.
