In a unique effort to recycle wasted energy, 8 teams of British eco-enthusiasts participated in a car rally from London to Athens in vehicles fueled by waste vegetable oil.

Thermoelectric materials are solid-state energy converters whose combination of thermal, electrical, and semiconducting properties allows them to be used to convert waste heat into electricity or electrical power directly into cooling and heating.

Batch digestion of vegetable waste slurry was carried out in the laboratory using 2.5L capacity bottle reactors for 60 days at ambient conditions. The biogas yield from vegetable waste over the length of the digestion time was observed to be 0.391L/g of VS fed.
