The Chesapeake and Renewable Energy

August

2014

I was scouring my various sources for what’s going on in the renewable energy markets and I came across an interesting story about hog waste being turned into methane and quality fertilizer for the farmers in Northern Missouri. You can read the details here about hog power project.

Coincidently the Washington Post had an editorial today that I had read regarding the water runoff and its impact on the Chesapeake and its tributaries. So in an effort to put off my real work for a bit longer I jumped on the website of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation where with just a few clicks I learned that agricultural runoff (animal waste and fertilizer) comprise 41% of the pollution effecting the Chesapeake Bay.

Seems to me that an opportunity exists to create a renewable energy source in Maryland that would not only generate a steady supply of natural gas and fertilizer for and from the states farmers, but reduce dramatically the pollutants in the Chesapeake. Would the long term benefits of this type of project be better than others being considered? Thoughts?
