Arava Institute, Israel 2014

In 2011, at the end of the Arava Institute Alumni Conference in Aqaba, Jordan, at which T.H. Culhane was the keynote speaker, a team of alumni and Culhane crossed the border to Israel with Arava biogas expert Yair Teller, and built two "salchicha" flexible bag type digesters at the Arava Institute in Kibbutz Lotan. In January of 2014 Culhane brought his students from Envisaj Mercy (The Mercy College Environmental Sustainability and Justice League), Abigail Franco, Tasheem Hall, Shamir Hyman, Lauren Lipp her mother Michelle Casper-Lipp, and Brazilian graduate of the Kibbutz Lotan Green Apprenticeship Program, Leo Adler, to visit the Arava and inspect the biogas system.  While it had been negelected for some time, it was still producing plenty of gas!
