Renewable Vehicle Fuel from Cow Manure
Renewable fuel known as biomethane, is being produced from ordinary cow manure. This is a perfect alternative to natural gas, and can power cars, trucks, and buses. Sweden already has 20 biomethane plants, which powers 2300 buses.
From the 8.5 million cows in the US, enough biomethane gas could
theoretically be produced to power a million cars. "It is not actually
the manure we'll put in the tank. We'll use the gas that forms when
manure is processed in a methane digester and then upgraded to vehicle
fuel quality," said Paul Martin, Environmental Services Director of
Western United Dairymen.
