9.14.17
Source: Environmental Leader, 9/13/17
Summary: Climate volatility has led to an increasing focus on resiliency and water supply risk, both for companies and municipalities, and that focus is driving investment in water reuse/reclaimed wastewater solutions. While much of the focus has centered on municipal utilities, industrial companies are also expanding their role in water reuse adoption to supplement their ongoing water needs, according to a new report from Bluefield Research.

Potato waste processing may be the road to enhanced food waste conversion
8.22.17
Source: Penn State University, 8/17/17
Summary: With more than two dozen companies in Pennsylvania manufacturing potato chips, it is no wonder that researchers in Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences have developed a novel approach to more efficiently convert potato waste into ethanol. This process may lead to reduced production costs for biofuel in the future and add extra value for chip makers.

Using potato mash made from the peelings and potato residuals from a Pennsylvania food-processor, researchers triggered simultaneous saccharification -- the process of breaking down the complex carbohydrate starch into simple sugars -- and fermentation -- the process in which sugars are converted to ethanol by yeasts or other microorganisms in bioreactors.
