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


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.
