Video: How a biodigester works

In 2013, SRC built a biodigester for the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum. The biodigester is like a mechanical stomach that creates renewable energy. It is fed with organic material, which is broken down by micro-organisms in an oxygen-free environment to produce a renewable energy called biogas and other material that is mainly used as fertilizer. The biogas can be used as a substitute or replacement for natural gas.
