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 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? Harry Diz, department chair and professor of environmental engineering at nearby Gannon University and the bio
Nano-bio-technology company Nanologix has apparently come up with a new process for producing hydrogen gas for use as a fuel. Microbiologists Dr. Sergey Gazenko and Ben Feldmann have developed a proprietary bacteria that can convert various nutrients into hydrogen. The idea of a proprietary life form is rather disturbing, but this is nonetheless probably the best path toward efficient production of hydrogen.
