is there a way to turn cow manure into fuel?

    Almost. A farmer named Albert Straus in Southern California has turned the methane released from cow’s waste into a viable source of energy; it powers his dairy, two cars, and a sixteen wheel tractor trailer. According to Straus, the cows are fed from a truck they have powered themselves.

    California actually has entire small farms that are run from the energy captured from cow manure. These capture systems remove the oxygen from the manure, leaving fertilizer and gas. Thousands of farms in Oregon and Iowa have also filed applications for similar projects. In this is also the potential for the gas to be turned into a fuel. The problems are that is less efficient and hard to transport, making it more viable as a local fuel source.
