Decomposing food waste is a rich source of methane gas. In landfills, this presents a problem as escaping methane contributes to the greenhouse effect. That’s why communities and food retailers are beginning to divert food waste to anaerobic digesters and capturing the resulting gas for use as fuel.
FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Siemens will on Thursday start an energy project to convert wind power into hydrogen for re-use as a general fuel or in natural gas pipelines. Siemens’ electrolysis plant in Mainz is based on Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) technology, which allows the capture and storage of electricity into hydrogen. It said the plant can process up to 6 megawatts of electricity, making it the biggest PEM installation of its kind worldwide and able to supply 2,000 fuel cell cars.
