Rethinking Resources

Reduce, reuse, recycle.  The three Rs have been the mantra of ecological thinking almost as long as our concept of sustainability has existed.  According to BIOFerm Energy Systems, it’s time to add a fourth R – resource.

The international BIOFerm provides clean renewable energy solutions by designing and constructing biogas plants to recover energy from organic waste and biomass.  Originally conceived as a way for farmers to recoup losses from excess crops, a BIOFerm biogas plant can serve anyone that creates 6,000 tons of organic waste in a year.  Not just farms.  According to Caroline Chappell of BIOFerm USA, a biogas plant “could be based at a university, a composting facility, a food processor – any producer of organic waste who is looking for alternatives to the landfill.”
