The Grade 12 Environmental Systems & Societies class has been investigating energy use on our campus and options for using renewables. One of the most obvious solutions to our need to deal with food waste and replace gas cylinders with renewable biogas is now a viable option in Sri Lanka. Arpico is making units that do precisely this!  Seniors Jennifer Andersson (also a c0-student leader of R&S) and Giorgio Picone discovered this in their study of LPG consumption and potential solutions!

Their blog post details what opportunities there are.
