Biogas has been used around the world in everything from rural DIY projects to highly engineered large-scale operations capable of powering thousands of homes at a time. A British waste management company called Biffa has facilities capable of powering up to 10,000 homes with waste it collects from food stores around the country. One Biffa client, the supermarket Sainsbury's, has one store entirely powered by expired food it ships to Biffa's facilities.

The set up may appear crude and can only produce electricity for between 6-8 hours a day, but it is the first step toward developing permanent and more efficient systems while serving as a proving ground for locals and visitors alike to build their knowledge and take localized power production using biogas to the next level.
