Biogas power made easy

Biogas power made easy. It took less than two hours to convert an off-the-shelf generator to run on biogas at Dexcel’s Scott Farm, near Hamilton in the Waikato. Equipment with a total load of 9–10 kW ran happily for over two hours on electricity from the generator. And, unlike petrol or diesel, there was almost no black soot or odour.
