More on Compost Heated Showers

Dana has left a new comment on your post "Compost Heated Shower" "For those who may not be familiar with Frenchman Jean Pain's work, he managed to produce hot water, year-round heating for his home and biofuel for an automobile with a single, great big, annual heap of compost, which met all of his energy needs. Pain was able to do this as he lived in a rural forested region, replete with large quantities of natural organic material, branches and bush. This can't/shouldn't be done on a large scale, by masses of people, but certainly small installations, such as Lawton's compost powered shower, are do-able, fun and sustainable.
