Jean Pain’s Compost-based Bioenergy System — 5 Comments

    • Right, create jobs making compost piles instead of fighting fires. Worse case scenario: Labor and fuel costs make this barely profitable. Still, you’d save billions on forests, homes, businesses, etc. Local valleys would gradually become lush agricultural havens. I’m trying to figure out why it’s not more widely used.

  1. I wonder how many people are using this system? A few hundred maybe? Why not hundreds of thousands? Why aren’t US forests managed more sustainably using methods like this? Think of the billions of $ saved in fighting forest fires, saved lives, homes and jobs. Maybe someone in the forest service can respond. Note: it doesn’t take another big government program. The forest service could merely help refine the process and promote the best solutions. Local communities could pitch in and buy the equipment and set up the compost piles.
