An expert with UW-Oshkosh says Wisconsin's farming and food production industries present a 'tremendous' opportunity for biogas in the state.  UW-Oshkosh Director of Biogas Systems and Research Development Brian Langolf spoke Friday during an Appleton event hosted by UW-Madison's Wisconsin Energy Institute. Biogas is a renewable energy source that's produced when organic materials are broken down by bacteria in an oxygen-free environment through a process called anaerobic digestion.  Langolf argued Wisconsin could become a national leader in biogas production by leveraging the 'huge amount of materials' produced by the agricultural sector and food processors.
