Missouri is not know for a progressive renewable energy program, but there are a few high spots. Of course, we are required to comply with EPA landfill regs. http://tinyurl.com/gs3xn This is a school near me whose students took some pretty big initiative and made something pretty cool happen. They burn landfill gas (mostly methane) to heat their boilers and save money. Methane is around 23 times more destructive than CO2 to the atmosphere, and is thought to be responsible for around 20% of the man-made contribution to global warming. The school's system isn't perfect. After a really big rain the methane may be 'dirty' for a couple days until things settle out again. During that time, they must use natural gas (their original fuel), so they are a duel fuel school.
