Hello BESTers

A digester to be built in Elmira, Ontario has been met with public 
criticism due to its proximity to urban development.  The biggest 
fear the critics claim is odor.  Chuck Martin, president of 
Woolwich Bio-En (the company constructing the digester), dispelled 
these myths in a public meeting.  Anaerobic digestion is in-fact, 
an odor reducing technology.  By capturing the biogas, the odors 
are captured with it.  Any fugitive odors are eliminated through a 
biofilter system.  This allows existing digesters to be in close 
proximity to urban areas all around the world.  The alternative (a 
landfill), as I'm sure you all are aware, certainly cannot claim 
to be odor-reducing.

Have a great weekend,
Ryan
