Leftover Food Waste Converted Into Green Energy In A Shipping Container
How excess space can help generate clean power, using your waste wisely.
British clean-tech company SeaB has developed an innovative project called MuckBusters that converts human and animal waste into electricity inside a 40 foot shipping container. The project claims to have included half a ton of food that has helped generate enough power to run 150 computers. It claims that San Francisco’s left over’s alone could help power 22,000 homes for an entire year. Reported in CNET:
If you believe the estimates, all you need is half a ton of unwanted food to run about 150 computers. Which presents a sobering counterpoint to the impression one has that 150 people sitting at computers in the average office consume at least 150 tons of food.
