Eco-City In Turkey Burns Pistachio Shells For Biogas
Up to 60 percent of the city's heat could be provided by leftover nuts.
As society becomes more aware and conscious of our environments, it only makes sense that more countries are developing eco-cities. Eco-cities usually have the goal of stimulating economic growth, improving health and city efficiency, and reducing carbon waste. In addition, employing renewable energy sources such as solar panels, wind turbines, and biogas are important. In alignment with those goals, Turkey is planning to build an eco-city within major industrial hub Gaziantep, but completely unique to eco-cities is Turkey's idea of using pistachio shells to provide the city's heat.
