Cow manure was mixed with egg, mashed banana, potato peelings, horse manure, and onion peelings, and left to ferment for a 12 day period. During this time, the organic mixtures were kept in plastic bottles, sealed with balloons to capture the gases. The mixture of cow manure and mashed banana released the most biogas during this time. Biogas is a form of clean, renewable energy.
