This technology can be used to clean up oil and gas contaminated sites, whether it be superfund properties or private stewardship, we can reinvigorate our communities with more useful land.

Microbial Degradation of Residential Food Wastes: Expediting Waste Digestion and Energy Extraction

Here in the United States, about 31% of the total food supply is wasted annually (EPA). Beyond that, 38 million tons of domestically food in the United States was wasted in 2014, and 95% of the wasted food is either disposed of in landfills or sent to combustion facilities, both of which are forms of waste management that are unsustainable in the long-run, and has detrimental effects on the environment at large. Landfills ...more »

After the process and unlike the oil that gave rise to it, the biodiesel (methyl ester) has a viscosity similar to that of diesel derived from petroleum and can replace it. [Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture, ...more »
