August 7, Jim Lane All that food waste, all that potential value. Turns out, the State of Hawaii and BioTork are doing a lot. Feed People, Not Landfills. Reduce Methane From Landfills. Create A Valuable Soil Amendment.
Reduce Over-Purchasing and Labor Costs 8. Receive Tax Benefits by Donating Food 1. Preventing food waste before it is created 2. Donating fresh, wholesome food to those in need 3.
Feeding food scraps to animals. Turning wastes into bioproducts or biofuels. Turning food waste into a soil amendment 6. So, there are a lot of reasons to suspect that Hawaii would be a leader in finding industrial applications for food waste.
Turns out, they are. The State of Hawaii recently passed legislation to assist in funding a zero-waste project that converts crops, crop residues, dedicated energy crops, and agricultural waste into economically and environmentally sustainable biofuels and value-added co-products.
Using a proprietary evolutionary optimization approach, BioTork enhances the performance of non-GMO microorganisms under real-world industrial conditions in an unrivaled cost efficient way.
The conversion process takes a few days to cycle in a heterotrophic environment, meaning no sunlight is needed, to create oil for biofuel and high-protein feed.
Bythe company had demonstrated in the lab that it could convert unmarketable Hawaiian papayas to fatty acids that can be refined into green fuels. The company successfully developed strains of microorganisms, algae and fungi, which can eat papaya culls and convert the sugars in that waste stream into high value oil suitable for the production of advanced drop in green diesel and jet fuel.
They also had a research collab with BASF to optimize certain microbial strains for the industrial production of bio-based polymers and green chemicals. First laboratory results showed that BioTork, in partnership with the Pacific Basin Agricultural Research Center, have found a means to turn an economic liability for Hawaiian papaya farmers into a high value co-product while addressing at the same time the need for domestic production of renewable non-petroleum-based biofuel.
Other funds have been appropriated through legislative capital improvement program allocations. With the additional support of special purpose revenue bond funding, BioTork Hawaii will be able to fuel the third step of its development program. This would involve scaling up to build and operate commercial facilities that will have the capacity to convert agricultural crops and by-products such as albizia, sweet potatoes, papaya, sugarcane bagasse, glycerol and molasses to biofuels and high-protein feed.
The problems of the world, with respect to food, relate to food distribution, not production.
In fact, the globe is awash in carbohydrates — we produce more carbs per capita than at any time in human history. The problem is that we talk too much about food — equating it with crops — and not enough about pre-food, which is what crops really are in the Industrial Age.
Crops are food precursors, not food — in industrial economies. Subsistence economies are different — as are foods raised in organic veggie patches.Blockchain Technology in Agriculture Sponsored by the Agricultural and Food Law Consortium Topic: Blockchain technology allows users to transfer value or assets between each other without the need for a trusted intermediary.
However, because the density of pure water is so close to 1 ( grams per cubic centimeter), specific gravity and density are nearly the same value so long as the density is given in g/cc. Density is very slightly less than specific gravity.
“By collaborating with the U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Beef, we can offer tangible solutions to the livestock value chain by exploring opportunities to combine our measurement approaches,” said Rod Snyder, president of Field to Market. Field to Market and Innovation Center for . Gravity Conveyor.
Gravity conveyor styles include roller, skate-wheel, chutes, spirals, ball transfers and flow rail. Typical uses include transportation, accumulation and queuing, buffer, workstation, directional and elevation changes. Define a value chain and the significance of the center of gravity.
Please also provide an example of a value chain from your place of work or from a company that you have researched. In mathematics and physics, the centroid or geometric center of a plane figure is the arithmetic mean position of all the points in the figure.
Informally, it is the point at which a cutout of the shape could be perfectly balanced on the tip of a pin.
