Here is an interesting unique way of approaching greening a business through a joint venture between Chiyoda Manufacturing Co., the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, and the Food Research Branch of the Kagawa Prefectural Industrial Technology Research Center.   

This joint venture resulted in a new technology that recycles udon noodle waste (which is big business, particularly in Japan) into bioethanol using a three part system – a fermentation system with a distillation column, methane fermentation tank and a methane gas power generation system.

This new technology, according to Japan For Sustainability (http://JapanFS.org) can produce 200 liters of bio-ethanol from 1,500 kilograms of udon noodle manufacturing waste.

The potential for expanding into other food industries is thrilling! Just think of all that valuable “waste” resource going to the landfill where it offers a host of environmental issues. If that could be diverted, create jobs, and provide renewable energy – what could be better?
