Onsite Digestion Machine Could Help Restaurants Convert Food Waste To Power

November 10, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
A start-up company that was spun off from a British university has developed a prototype of an onsite anaerobic digestion machine that uses microbes to convert restaurant and hospital food waste to biogas. The gas can then be used to create electricity for heat or power. The U.K. has more than 200 anaerobic digestion plants, but this is the first onsite solution. The entrepreneur who developed the prototype and launched the company out of her doctoral research is seeking the funding needed to commercialize the project within a year.  [Image Credit: © IntelliDigest ]
