Dorine: Thanks for your comments --- and congratulations on your project (I have definitely heard of SimGas in Kenya before). We'd love to talk further about working together in Kenya --- just shoot me an email at trashiscash at mit dot edu.

To answer your questions --- We use slightly different feedstock than you do. Biodigesters typically require wet feedstock such as manure, organic waste, etc. We work best with dry, fibrous feedstock such as agricultural and forestry residues. Our process is thermochemical whose advantage is that it is about 100 times faster than biological pathways (it takes us about 30-90 minutes to turn organic waste into fertilizer, rather than weeks'-months' time).
