That is, the manure is piled into a "lagoon", where it is left to ferment a while until it gets nice and rosy. Then they capped the lagoon...  ...piped the raw smell to a digester...  ...and then to a "scrubber" system that cleans up the gas with water to remove the elements that cause the odor...  ...and finally, to a gas pump!  That's a local taxi that just happened to pull in for a fill-up while we were standing around. Biomass Energy, Gas Pumps, Clean Up, Taxi, Fill, How To Remove, Shit Happens, Water, Gripe Water

Day Five - Bioenergy Tours

A most satisfying and informative ending to the conference. Visited four places, four different aspects of bioenergy production and utilization here in Finland. Warning: pictures may be boring to some, but those interested in the future of the planet, press on... Check your pulse, this...is a landfill. But there is one aspect of this landfill you won't find in most other places in the world. The waste from about 200,000 inhabitants of the region is recycled into various products; organic…

Wood chips and bark blown from a log home factory to a neighboring wood-fired CHP power station. The station supplies power to the local town and steam heat back to the kilns at the factory. Biomass Energy, Raw Material, Boiler, Log Homes, The Locals, Grid, Electric, Chips, Tours

These silver cylinders are heat exchangers; the one on the right has a 6 megawatt rating and provides heat from the unique boiler it sits aside to over 100 customers in the city. The heat exchanger on the left feeds heat to the company next door, which dries logs to turn them into log homes. The company, by the way, provides the raw material for the boiler in the form of dried sawdust and bark.

Smarter Energy Policy Made Easy

The last post pointed out that perhaps our current method of developing energy policy could be improved a little. It's not clear what methodology is being employed at present, unless it is "energy policy by lobbying power", or "energy policy by ideology", both of which blow back and forth with the election winds. Not good for long-term management of limited resources. Wouldn't it make a little more sense to apply energy policy by scientific and market potential? How would that work, you ask?…
