Post subject:  Need to Capture and Use Methane Gas

>>>>> Excerpt from Green Power <<<<<
(Note: Based on facts from research)

Dr. Pendleton explained how these reactions can occur within the digestive tracts of some animals. He reported that Methanobacterium species have been isolated from the first stomach of dairy cows. He went on to explain that this is why they are capturing the methane gas from manure to power many dairy operations in other countries.
As the lecture was coming to an end, Linda observed Dr. Pendleton’s transition into his Green Power mode. This wasn’t the first time she had seen him do this. He changed from an academic approach of his presentation to an opinionated critique on why we need to use the anaerobic digestion process of waste to produce methane gas as an alternate source of energy. He said, “The United States is way behind such countries as China with its 7 million digesters in the rural areas and 560 power stations and India with one million family units and 100 community units.”
