While developing a system to convert food, agricultural, and yard waste into megawats of electricity, a "Biogas" program emerged that contributed to the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh earning a third place ranking on the 2015 edition of the Sierra Club’s prestigious “Coolest Schools” list.
Join Koker shares the benefits of Biogas programs, and reviews the local program's part in a University’s mission to become a more sustainable institution.
