Bean Gas!

  1. Dec 30, 2003 #1
    I think we have a wasted source of power on Earth. Alot of beans are eaten around the world everyday. How about trying to harness the gas emitted by bean eaters. I mean, have like a collection center where people can go and give off their gas and get paid for it based on volume. etc. Just a thought.

    trolling doesn't work too well on these boards... we just ignore them.

    On a serious note, there are some recent efforts to convert waste gas into energy. Some companies/industries that generate organic waste streams are capturing the methane offgas and burning it to provide electricity for their facility...sometimes enough to free them from the power grid altogether. A way-cool idea.

    Interesting but I would hate to be the guy that has to wire all this stuff up.
