Cacti for biogas? New research tackles a prickly issue

The New Scientist has published an article on using cacti for biogas. Mike Mason, an academic from Oxford University who attended ADBA's R&D Forum in April, suggests that the 300 million hectares of underused semi-arid land in the world could be used for the production of cacti, which would then be converted into biogas.

Mike Mason is also involved in Tropical Power – a company that has developed and built AD plants in Africa. It is great to see AD academics getting involved in commercial AD activities and thinking of new ideas for how to contribute to the world's energy needs.
