Richard Boettner Posted about 1 year ago All restaurant could produce much of their own energy from bathroom & food waste converted to biogas and fertilizer closing the loop. In reply to: Krisztián Pintér Sure that could be done as well but my point is that restaurants produce a huge amount of waste that could be converted to energy and fertilizer which is not even being considered. By hauling waste away to a dedicated facility means you are using energy which reduces the overall offset in the way I am proposing which is many, many smaller units (biodigester) near the source material to produce the energy where it is needed. One last thing, restaurants use a lot of natural gas, methane, and my idea to is provide that from the waste rather than producing biogas that is then converted to electricity that is then transmitted and all along that pathway you inefficiencies contributing to energy loss. Right now we are collectively wasting nearly 55% of the energy potential from various sources due to huge inefficiencies and that is something we need to fix as we move toward a sustainable future with renewable energy at the center. Thank You for your input.
