They say one person’s trash is another person’s treasure…but what about one farmer’s animal’s…poop! Could we turn that into a renewable energy source? Could we turn something so dirty…and smelly into clean energy used to feed people?

Biogas research and technology does just that. By turning animal manure into clean, renewable energy, researchers working in rural Kenya are helping farmers improve their quality of life.

Taisha Venort is a masters student in Agricultural and Biological Engineering at Purdue University. She is here today to talk about finding energy in unique places.
