Humus As A Fuel Source?


-- Quote of the Day --
"The way to develop self-confidence is to do the thing you fear and get a record of the successful experiences behind you. Destiny  is not a matter of chance - it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for - it is a thing to be achieved."

~ William Bryan

I learned from the Japan for Sustainability Organization  (japanfs.org) that the Ajinomoto Co., a major Japanese food and seasonings manufacturer, produces a lot of wast humus – a pulp-like waste product from processing soybeans.  This humus is dried and can provide the same BTU as coal, but the bonus lies in that is it carbon-neutral. Therefore the company decided to make arrangements with the Kawasaki Biomass Power Station, who are now using this “waste” item as a valuable fuel source.
