Hi BESTSers,

   Biogas is not just for industrialized nations.  On the island 
of Java in Indonesia, local Tofu manufacturers are producing 
biogas from their left-over soybean scraps.  Not only are their 
handling the waste, which previously caused a problematic stench, 
but also producing a renewable fuel with which they cook their 
tofu.  Best of all they are doing it all on-site.  This is truly 
local energy.  This article shows that the benefits of biogas are 
just as great, if not greater, in developing countries as in 
industrialized nations, by giving renewable energy to those that 
need it most.  Just image the marketing potential for their tofu 
here in the US (Tofu Green??)
