Costa Rican and MSU officials help dedicate new anaerobic digester

Costa Rican and MSU officials help dedicate new anaerobic digester | Rainbow Organic | Scoop.it
Many dignitaries from the United States and Costa Rica gathered in theCentral American country this week to officially commission a newly builtanaerobic digester.
Rainbow Organic's insight:
The anaerobic digester does its work in an airtight tank. Using solar energy, the material is heated to about 115 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 days. Microorganisms in the manure break down the organic material, creating biogas that can be burned for heat or electricity, as well as partially decomposed organic matter, water and nutrients that can be applied to crop fields as fertilizer.
