Hello BESTers,

The Leamington/Kingsville area of southern Ontario is the largest 
concentration of greenhouses in North America, with over 1600 acres.  
One thing greenhouses need, especially in cooler climates, is a source 
of heat.  A producer in the area, Pelee Hydroponics, is using biogas 
produced from an anaerobic digester they had installed as a source of 
heat.  The digester is treating food and animal waste from local farms 
and greenhouses in a two-phase digestion system.  The biogas is 
combusted in a combined heat and power generator, in which electricity 
is sold back to the grid and "waste" heat is used to heat their 
greenhouses and neighbors' greenhouses.  The project further 
demonstrates the number of applications for anaerobic digestion 
technology.

Have a great weekend,
Ryan
