Pig Manure into Energy

Converting animal waste, in this case pig manure, into energy seems to have brought benefits to Ong-Arj Suwunnatee, a Thai pig farmer. He built a biogas plant that captures the methane gas from pig manure and converts it into electricity, saving him money and reducing the strong smell of accumulated animal waste, which pleases his neighbors. The Ministry of Energy has set a target of building 1,540, 100 MW bio-gas plants by 2011.

Reducing animal waste by turning it into energy helps restore the environment; however, it does not alleviate the suffering and pain to which farmed animals are subjected. The right way to reduce animal waste is to produce less of it by raising fewer animals. Adopting a plant-based diet not only reduces the number of animals raised for food but also helps restore God's Creation and our health.
