This looks a promising development which could be a much better alternative to fracking.

Green gas from the garden?
Re-reading Anne's post about Ecotricity's project, and worrying about not keeping up with cutting the rough grass in our garden and paddock prompted me to search for 'gas from grass' and I found this.

I think these anaerobic digesters are sensitive to temperature. In China and India, low-tech versions are widely used on small-holdings, but in the UK they seem to be more sensitive, and need some heat to keep them operating. The general thinking in the UK is that they are primarily waste disposal units, with an energy by-product, i.e. avoiding the cost of waste disposal is a more important driver than generating revenue from energy generation.
