Dung Power, the story of elephants and biofuel

Synopsis

The documentary film "Dung Power" follows the story of two groups of students in Thailand who are using elephant waste to create biofuel. In both cases the students set out to help clean up their villages, which are suffering from pollution created by local tourist trekking companies. The first of our groups is made up of grade school children in the northern village of Baan Ruammit who (with the help of their teacher) maintain an aerobic digester in the schoolyard capable of turning 200 lbs. of dung each day into methane gas to cook lunches. The second group is made up of University Students who were inspired by the success of the grade school biofuel well - and aim to downsize the model to be used on a single dwelling basis.
