Animal Waste Could Power Toronto Zoo

The Toronto Zoo wants to use the manure produced by its animals to generate its electricity, which seems like a perfect scenario for a zoo. The problem is the biogas electricity plant would cost CDN $13 million (US $10.5 million), a sum of money the revistaneon.net zoo doesn't have.

The City of Toronto says that it doesn't have the money to loan the zoo, which has lead the zoo on http://www.chemistswithoutborders.org/cheap-viagra-pills a search for private investors. The zoo claims that a biogas electricity plant run on its animals' waste would not only produce enough power for its own operations, but enough to sell back to the grid that the project would pay for itself within five years.

If the zoo is able to canadian cialis online secure funding, the power plant could begin construction in 2009.

I always root for scenarios like these where an area or company has a lot of an unusual resource and best price levitra they come up with a way to harness its potential. The Japanese airport that will begin using snow to cool its buildings is http://www.jubileecampaign.nl/viagra-in-india another great example of this type of innovation. I hope that the zoo gets its funding, especially since it's not only able to provide for itself, but give back to the grid as well.

I wonder what they've been doing with the manure so far. I can't imagine it all just goes to the sewage treatment plant. fertilizer?

In related news, there is a dairy farm near my parent's house that generates electricity with a methane digester.

BioEnergy Solutions

The other ecogeek article today on "Cow Power" describes the California company BioEnergy Solutions that does what the Toronto Zoo wants-- they build and install the biogas equipment, then pay the levitra no prescription canada site owner a percentage of get viagra cheap revenue-- no money needed.

To find references, google "Manure Biogas" or "Cow Power" and you'll find good references, e.g. mrec.org/anaerobic_digestion_text.html

What a great idea. I hope they're able to come up with the funding. I'd imagine that just about any zoo with available real estate could do the same thing. The San Diego Wild Animal Park would be a great place, given the number of large animals it has.

Manure Equals Power and get pharmacy High Grade Potti
written by Mark Palmer, January 01, 2009
There is a small but rapidly growing company called Agrigy, that can help dairy farmers (or poultry) covert their MANURE to METHANE for creating power, and take the solids and quickly convert to a high grade potting soil, eliminating all the waste. A methane digester and generator can create more than enough power to run the entire dairy, and sell excess to the grid!
