The workings of a methane generator, powered by… actually, you don’t want to know.
This video follows the journey of three students discussing the concepts of renewable and non-renewable energy and then making a working methane generator. We see inside the methane generator and meet the microbes responsible for this amazing biochemical transformation. The closing montage is the all-important safety notice.

No! Not the cow-pat! Eu!
Nicely done, this film. Lots of elements planned carefully and brought together cleanly. Also: trumpet jokes. Terrific.
If they really have made a methane generator I’d love to see more of what they’ve done, but even without a working device they’ve given a decent explanation of how one works. So I guess that’s OK.
