Culhane biogas presentation on National Geographic Explorer ship

Between October 11th and 26th, 2014, Dr. T.H. Culhane presented on Biogas solutions and Urban Ecology aboard the Lindblad/National Geographic Explorer ship en route from Bahia Salvador, Brazil through Rio down to Uruguay and Argentina.  Culhane also took guests on this National Geographic expedition to the rainforest favela of Vale Encantado where they had built a 10m3 Puxin Biodigester. 



As part of the expedition, Culhane discussed with shipboard engineers the use of galley food wastes, currently ground up and thrown overboard, to produce all the cooking fuel for the vessel.
