Community Coverage: Developing Energy from Pig Farms

There is a man in Floydada who's developing ways to produce energy, but the power comes from another type of farm.

"What we do is we gather manure from pig farms and get it into a container or bladder, and we use the methane gas to run a generator," said Don Hardy, of Don Hardy Fuel Efficient Engines.

That pig manure is now fueling a world-wide business.

With the help of Texas A&M and the University of California, Hardy and his crew have developed engines that run on methane gas.  And those engines are shipped world-wide, but mostly to the Phillipines.

Hardy has also designed and sells fuel efficient irrigation and farm equipment.
