Each year over 1.3 billion tons of food is thrown away, with over 90% ending up in landfills. Through the process of hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) this waste can be harnessed and converted into a usable energy product. The addition of a bi-functional catalyst has the potential to improve the amount of energy recovered from food, thereby increasing commercial viability. This technology works to produce renewable energy from waste, helping to obtain a sustainable future.
