Okay, the super biodigester name is mine, but that sure seems like a good term for what they're doing there. Looks like somebody finally realized that there's gazillions of different microbes out there and that maybe just being patient enough they could find the right ones - ones that good ole nature has already provided for us. It will be interesting to see where this goes.

Nice. This is only about 45 min. from where I live. I should look into getting a tour.

Good stuff, I have worked with a company (Lanzatech) that is using gasified wood, fed to bugs, to produce ethanol. (They were using the gas we produced. ) Also recently interviewed with a company that is doing the same with gasified coal. Interesting how folks are isolating all sorts of bugs to do all sorts of work for us.
