Whey to go, Cumbria!!

April 13th, 2016

This dairy in northern England powers itself and the local community with cheese biogas.
That’s right, they take the waste water and the whey, feed it to microbes, who in turn, convert it to methane, which is used to provide gas for cooking and heat to about 1,600 local homes and businesses. Pretty awesome. I wonder if they can figure out how to use the massive amounts of methane produced by the cows (major source of greenhouse gas, by the way), and convert that too. I also wonder if the whole town smells like somebody cooking a giant grilled cheese sandwich.
