Renewable Energy Micro Power Plant Using Organic Waste as Fuel

Project description

Turning food waste into energy all in one place

Traditional ways of dealing with organic waste are not sustainable. Urbanisation is putting too much pressure on landfills and making waste management too costly. To reverse this trend, future buildings could process their own organic waste while recapturing the energy, fertiliser and water from it. The EU-funded MicroRenew project will develop the manufacturability of a new device that turns food waste into energy. The patented FLEXIBUSTER™ can process up to 3 000 kg of waste per day, reducing the cost of waste transport and disposal. It can generate clean energy in the form of electricity and heat, with water and fertiliser as its only by-products.
