Sistema: Helping Farmers In Developing Countries Create Renewability From Organic Waste
Earlier in this series I wrote about a company that was using biomass digestion to create fertilizer and useful gases.
Sistema is doing the same sort of thing, only they are using this technology (which dates back to WWII) to provide the tools for farmers in developing countries to create biomass power plants that produce methane gas that they can uses for any number of reason.
The process is basically a digester which creates the zero carbon methane gas out of organic waste, and then channels it wherever it can be of use. The remaining material after the methane is extracted is a high grade fertilizer.In addition providing the biomass digestion technology, which can be used anywhere in the world, it also provides the training so that farmers can operate their own biomass digesters and create a certain amount of self sufficiency.

The Use Of Ferrous Scrap Metal In The Steelmaking ProcessThis link is to a post I wrote for my client Peel Scrap Metal Recycling. It’s about a recent trend in the steel making industry, toward using recycled scrap ferrous metal to heat their furnaces instead of the vast amounts for coal that these furnaces usually consume.
The Japanese steel making industry’s major companies have pledged to make their operations carbon neutral by the year 2050. And the Chinese steel industry is quickly moving in the same direction.
A big part of the solution will be importation of scrap ferrous metals which provide the heat factors these industries provide without a CO2 by-product..
Hydrogen Power: The Fuel of The FutureThis press release from Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials is promoting a hydrogen paste they have developed as a power source for cars and e-scooters.
“Hydrogen is regarded by many as the future of propulsion technology. The first hydrogen-powered cars are already in action on German roads. In the case of e-scooters, however, installation of a high-pressure tank to store the hydrogen is impractical. An alternative here is POWERPASTE. This provides a safe way of storing hydrogen in a chemical form that is easy to transport and replenish without the need for an expensive network of filling stations.”
You can read the whole press release here and look around the Fraunhofer Institute site as well, here: https://www.fraunhofer.de/en/press/research-news/2021/february-2021/hydrogen-powered-drives-for-e-scooters.html
You have to admire the sheer number of ways that alternative non-carbon based energy can be created. It’s just a matter of time before these technologies will be widely accepted and become the standard, and a substantial part the job of cleaning up the environment can be achieved.
