News in a flash - Beer Power

A joint project between UQ and Foster's to turn beer wastewater into electricity has won $140,000 from the Queensland Government's Sustainable Energy Innovation Fund.

The process also produces clean water and renewable (non-polluting) carbon dioxide.

Dr Rabaey said with the current drought, the smart use of natural resources had never been more important.

“Energy and water supply are among the biggest challenges we will face in the coming decades,” he said.

“Therefore, we must learn how to diversify our portfolio of fuels – and we must learn to reduce our energy and water usage.” - Australian Food News
