Tex-Mex Company to Convert Plant to Run on Farts


Well, recovered methane, but basically, the same thing.  Park that bad boy next to a Taco Bell, and you’ve got a perpetual motion machine:

Bruce Foods, a manufacturer of Tex-Mex food and hot sauces is converting a plant to run on recovered methane.

The Wilson plant, one of four owned by the Tex-Mex specialist, produces canned yams, potatoes and gravies, which results in huge mounds of food waste and consequently a prodigious output of methane. Previously, the plant simply vented the methane but purchased natural gas to run its equipment. After the expansion is complete, the plant will run mainly on recovered methane.

Of course, here in New Jersey, we call that “Passaic.”
