Heartland Biogas is the proud owner of a biogas digester in northern Colorado. In the most awesome terms, that would be a giant machine that eats tons of food and belches out methane gas, a source of electricity.

This week the company is featured in a new video by The Perennial Plate, which is definitely worth four minutes.

And if that leaves you wanting more, head over to Colorado Public Radio and read Luke Runyon’s story on the plant.

Correction: This story earlier stated that A1 Organics owns the digester. In fact, A1 operates the digester, which is owned by Heartland Biogas.
