Back in September, a company called NanoLogix announced it had been able to make hydrogen from the waste stream at a Welch Foods juice plant in Pennsylvania. Now, the radio show "The Allegheny Front," an environmental radio program, has taken a closer look at this technology and aired a report last week. You can hear it here (look for "Microbes Turn Waste to Power" and "Welch's Grape Juice Converted into Electricity") or read the transcript of the report here.
Nanologix Hydrogen Biomass
NanoLogix has announced the successful creation of hydrogen gas from a prototype bioreactor at a facility run by Welch Foods in Pennsylvania (the best belches come from Welches grape juice, we used to say). NanoLogix used the hydrogen to power an electricity generator, but EV and hydrogen car enthusiasts can get behind a system that uses waste-digesting bacteria to make hydrogen, right?
