Good morning BESTers,

     Feedstocks for biogas are all around us.  San Francisco is 
beginning a new program to produce energy from dog waste through 
anaerobic digestion.  The feces will be mixed with food waste to 
balance the feedstock and produce more energy.  Pet feces 
comprises 3.8% of San Francisco's landfilled waste and accounts 
for 10 million tons nationally.  The process also eliminates 
pathogens in the waste, a problem that is gaining increasing 
attention with current methods.  With innovative programs such as 
this, there is huge potential for biogas in our sustainable energy 
future.
