Deriving energy from food waste - Smart technologies can extract energy from food waste and by-products

Nearly 100 of the UK's leading food and drink manufacturers and retailers have signed up for the Courtauld 2025 drive. At the drive's heart is a ten-year commitment to cut the carbon, water and waste associated with food and drink by at least one-fifth.

Is Waste to Energy Set to Increase in the Coming Years?

There are currently 71 waste to energy (WTE) plants in the United States. WTE plants only account for 0.4% of total electricity generation, although there is great potential to increase this percentage in the future.

Waste to Energy Market size is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 7% by 2024.

The surging urban population and industrialization has resulted in a massive increase of waste generation every year. This trend is particularly growing across emerging economies.

Scientists harness solar power to produce hydrogen from biomass

University of Cambridge via Biomass Magazine: Â Dr Moritz Kuehnel, from the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge, joint lead author on a new research paper published in Nature Energy, says: "Lignocellulose is nature's equivalent to armoured concrete. It consists of strong, highly crystalline cellulose fibres, that are interwoven with lignin and hemicellulose which act as a glue. This rigid structure has evolved to give plants and trees mechanical stability and protect them from degradation, and makes chemical utilisation of lignocellulose so challenging." The new technology relies on a simple photocatalytic conversion process. Catalytic nanoparticles are added to alkaline water in which the biomass is suspended. This is then placed in front of a light in the lab which mimics solar light. The solution is ideal for absorbing this light and converting the biomass into gaseous hydrogen which can then be collected from the headspace. The hydrogen is free of fuel-cell inhibitors, such as carbon monoxide, which allows it to be used for power. Â Full Article:
