Hello BESTers,

A new biogas plant has recently opened in Nairobi treating abattoir, 
or slaughterhouse waste, from the Dagoretti slaughterhouse.  This plant 
demonstrates the potential of food waste digesters to treat a wide 
variety of food wastes, not just vegetable waste.  In fact, proteins 
and fats can be beneficial to a digester because they have a higher 
energy potential than carbohydrates alone, and proteins are a source of 
nitrogen that can be reclaimed as biofertilizer.

Have a great weekend,
Ryan
