Dear Dan Wells,

I haven't specifically heard of the farmers project in Bavaria to generate electricity from methane and compost/fertilizer from MSW, but it is a common idea in Germany. There is a waste-to-energy project for organic matter at Ansbach, Bavaria, using a technology called Thermoselect , and one planned for Herten in Westphalia as of early 1998. In Baden-Wurttenburg there is a bio-waste composting facility that also generates electricity as a sideline. I believe it is called the Backnang facility. I can suggest 3 sources who might know about the Bavarian farmers + MSW one to which you refer:

Carl Otto Jaeschke, UEC Umwelttechnik Engineering Consult, GmbH, Germany, tel: 03312847600

Marco de Bertolidi, Dept. of Industrial Microbiology, University of Udine, Italy

Luc de Baere, Organic Waste Systems, Ghent, Belgium
