Just listened to an NPR segment on how towns are starting to use anaerobic 'digesters' to reduce food waste going to dumps. There was some mention about how anaerobic digesters are more efficient than aerobiic composting. What are these advantages, and does this process carry over to the homeowner scale? Is there such a thing as a backyard 'digester' and is there any reason to consider this method as a replacement for the compost pile?
Here is a link that might be useful: NPR segment
