Cooking egg on biogas from palm oil residuals

I have recently visited our projects in Indonesia that deals with biogas from palm oil residuals. At a palm oil plant in Borneo, FOV Biogas installed a 100 m3 pilot that is producing biogas from POME (palm oil mill effluent) in a textile reactor. In a parallel project, in a lab textile reactor at Gadjah Mada University, OPEFB (Oil Palm Empty Fruit Bunches) are converted to biogas. Our Indonesian student (Luki) with his colleague are happily cooking egg for their lunch from the biogas that they have produced  from OPEFB. I tasted the egg, and it was quite good :)
