"Zabaleen" is the Arabic term for those visionary and enterprising people whose culture revolves around recycling. The Zabaleen are experts at "transforming one man's garbage into another man's gold" and aspire toward a net zero-waste economy. Applied and supported this could lead to true energy independence, not only by radically reducing our demand for "raw materials" and hard to extract natural resources but by recycling other less obvious phenomena and materials that are now wasted.
In prep for the Nat Geo "How to Live Curious" video segment I've also ordered another tri-fuel conversion kit that we use in Egypt and other parts of Africa for transforming electric generators in less than 15 minutes into biogas engine gensets. The link is below if you want to join us in this initiative; the cost of ...the kit is $187; not bad considering your fuel is going to be more or less cost free for the rest of your life (or until you permanently run out of organic garbage!). Curious? Check it out!
