Complete Biogas: Food Waste and Biogas, Part 1


| 9/4/2014 11:19:00 AM


Small Scale Biogas Generator

There’s a gold mine out back of your local restaurant.

…Or at least that’s one way of looking at it. Of course, what I’m talking about is wasted food — the stuff you don’t eat from your plastic tray of super-sized this and that, the French fries that got a little too brown in the fryer, the stale burger buns. That stuff. It’s gold, really.

As my good friend Bob Hamburg of Dragon Husbandry once said:

“As for ‘waste disposal,’ we’ve got two mis-defined terms mashed together, resulting in an abominable oxymoron. In nature there is no such thing as waste. All residues serve as resources for further growth — there is nothing to be disposed of. Nothing is thrown away. Indeed, there is no ‘away.’ Everything must go somewhere. The misconception of ‘waste disposal’ must be superseded by a better understanding of ‘residue management.’”



Right on, Bob.

Thanks for sharing David! I'm interested in getting started on this at my home (for a hobby project). I'll contact you on your Complete Biogas site.
