In Massachusetts the park with street lamps powered by dog shit

madre terra2The Park Spark project is the transformation of dog waste into energy (methane) through a publicly fed methane digester as an interactive urban intervention that questions our current waste system, and at the same time creates an opportunity for others to participate in the (re)imaging of the byproduct energy (methane).Anywhere people are walking dogs can be a source of heat and light by introducing a Methane Digester into the equation. As long as people are walking dogs and throwing away dog poo, a flame can burn.The Park Spark project is the transformation of dog waste into energy (methane) through a publicly fed methane digester as an interactive urban intervention that questions our current waste system, and at the same time creates an opportunity for others to participate in the (re)imaging of the byproduct energy (methane).The Park Spark project is a digester, which can be above-ground or buried underground except for a tube and a hand-crank, so that people can feed the digester and stir the mixture inside. Learn about the environmental benefits of burning methane and how to “green” your park.The methane captured by the Park Spark is piped to gas burning lamppost like an ‘eternal flame’. This eternal flame will burn until someone or a group of people propose an idea to use the heat and light of the constantly burning flame and make a public project. Note: Methane is known to be 30-70 times more potent than carbon dioxide as a harmful greenhouse gas. Burning Methane CH4, a potent greenhouse gas, separates it into Carbon Dioxide CO2 and Water H20. Although CO2 is another greenhouse gas it is not actually as potent as methane, so by burning methane you can actually earn carbon credits. Visit the website: Park Spark project
