Down Under (TGW) – A plant in Australia will use methane from banana waste to power cars.
Still in the prototype stage, the factory, built by Growcom, will transform banana waste into biomethane, which will then be used in vehicles powered by natural gas.
"An over-riding principle of the project has been to use locally available materials and expertise wherever possible. The system must also integrate with existing farm practices. If on-farm digesters are to have a commercial future they must add to farm efficiency and be simple to operate," Growcom board member Keith Noble said.
