Manure powered biogas town – in Germany – does not smell.

Posted by: Geoff Davis In: Energy

Lünen, north of Dortmund in Germany, is the first town to be powered by biogas from cow and horse manure. 90,000 people to benefit. Uses farm slurry and all that leftover stuff. Does not smell. Less impact than solar or wind. Did anyone mention wind?

See our page on renewable energy systems including combined heat and power

Also Guardian article on Lunen’s biogas
