If we converted our sewage plants to produce methane could we power electric generators in each town?

Best answer:

Answer by johnbntexas
if it was cost effective we would have done so

lots of ideas sound great until you research the infrastructure and operating cost - and the volume of methane required is also a factor that makes this impractical

for the naysayers below - what research have you actually done - this was first researched in the 1970's and no one has found it feasible in over 30 years !
AS FOR THE LINK - CHECK COST PER KILOWATT ( if it's not there -guess why ! )

What do you think? Answer below!

    Why are you so against renewable energy? The technology is there. Accept it.
    Why do you find that so unbelievable? is it because you would then have a problem with why our government is on the side of oil and funding terrorism instead of being on the side of the American citizen and not destroying our environment? Well, maybe that’s the first step.

    Landfill methane is currently being collected in some areas and used as industrial boiler fuel. Your idea is technically possible where it can be economically justified.
