Biogas can function as fuel creating power in any number of configurations from providing energy with relatively low-tech devices such as boilers internal combustion engines to more complex and state of the art micro turbines and solid oxide or molten carbonate fuel cells. The waste not digested by the Anerobic bacteria and made into biogas becomes either liquid fertilizer or compost growing a variety of crops.

A community with an IBS or similar sustainable technology could receive money for the scale of carbon and methane sequestration. Gaviotas actually received 2 million dollars from a Japanese fund and this money helped them to plant 36,000 acres of pine trees, but from the forest sprang a business exporting colofonia, which is needed to make natural paints, in Columbia.

Considering the Role of Information Technologies

Like farming in general, more advanced stages of Integrated Farming can see additional benefits through the application of Information Technologies to enable more effective optimization of the feedback loops within the system (for more read about considering the role of Holistic ICT in Sustainable Development/[[Holistic ICT for EcoLiving]]).
