Friday Digest

The Indian food digestion company that we talked about recently just won Britain’s Ashden Award for food security. The company, BIOTECH, has installed more than 12,000 biogas digesters that transform food waste to electricity. Best of all, the majority of these contraptions are at individual homes (closing that proverbial loop). 

This technology, also called anaerobic digestion, is catching on in the UK, too. The good ol’ U.S. of A. has one operating digester that processes food waste (in Davis, Calif.), but a few more are on the way. We do have many in use making megawatts from livestock manure.

Finally, on a lighter(?) note, check out these song lyrics. I’m not sure where the humor comes in, but this parody of The Who’s “Baba O’Riley” is…interesting. And if I’m gonna have the original song stuck in my head all day, you might as well, too.
