Food waste is turned into kilowatts at Novi Energy's digester plant (USA)

1/27/2013

The sun and the wind seem to get all the attention in renewable energy. For Novi Energy, an overlooked fuel source for the future is a raucous and potent blend of food wastes and livestock manure.
Only 3% to 5% of the plant's fuel stream is manure, mostly that of hogs and cows from western Michigan. Manure has less energy potential than wastes such as fats and grease.
