    Default We Pay A Tax To Produce Clean Energy

    Laurie Brosnan is frustrated. “We pay a tax to produce clean energy,” says the pig farmer from Biloela in central Queensland
    In the past five years, his company, Bettafield Piggery, has invested millions of dollars in an advanced biogas system that not only meets all its own electricity needs, but feeds extra back into the grid.
    It also takes care of all the piggery’s organic waste – plus extra food waste from schools and cafes in the nearby town – and generates water for irrigation and rich compost for the fields.

    The government (any government) should loan money to piggeries to do this everywhere, it solves several problems at once. Brilliant idea!

    One of my first alternate energy books I bought back in the early 70s was Methane Digesters For Fuel Gas and Fertilizer by L. John Fry, who converted pig manure to natural gas and fertilizer, while curtailing multitudes of flies on his South African farm. I see the book is now online for free: http://journeytoforever.org/biofuel_...sters/MD1.html
