Waste - Waste Everywhere! Did you know that according to the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI), the United States produces over than 70 million tons of organic waste annually? That's a lot of waste! Keep in mind that organic waste doesn't only include food waste, but also items like wastewater, agricultural and livestock wastes, and inedible food waste. Upon decomposing, the organic wastes will produce methane, a greenhouse gas that is more effective at trapping heat than carbon dioxide.
That's Where Biogas Production Comes In. Biogas is a renewable form of energy that's created when organic waste is collected, cleaned, and compressed. Not only does biogas production assist in decreasing greenhouse gas emissions, but its potential as a green energy source contains much untapped potential.
