Energy from elephant dung
With the help of biogas digesters, the waste products of herbivores can be used to generate gas for stoves, heat and even electricity. It is well-known that, thanks to the large amount of dung that they produce, elephants are a perfect candidate for this purpose. As the digesters break down the organic waste, methane and carbon dioxide are collected to be used in stoves or gas-powered engines. Nutrient-rich bio-slurry is also created during this process, which can then be used as a fertiliser. Biogas from manure is not effective enough to meet all of our energy needs, but if used correctly in combination with other processes, it could have a beneficial impact on the world by saving natural fossil resources.
The BioArt Gallery presents promising feedstock and its related bioeconomy applications in everyday life with 60 stunning pictures. It offers an innovative approach of showcasing to the public some examples of bio-based products and applications currently available in the market through several examples: cosmetics, nutraceuticals, tissues, toys and sport, disposable tableware, cleaning products, gadgets, and much more.
