Shite to Light
Following on my post on “Grass to Gas” I have been reminded of the sterling efforts of the “Shite to Light” brigade. HRH Charlie Wales has long since been a supported of Anaerobic Digesters – changing cow-puckie into gas and thereby into electricity via a sterling engine and generator.
Les Gornall my long time friend from Maherafelt was the shite expert who did the work for Charlie and many others. He has been since working fro BP and all sorts of other interesting contracts - making a fortune from shite!
The oldest digesters have been running for about 20 years making usable methane and the left over material when dried is almost sterile and makes the finest of fertilizer.
