LIPOR and Porto University (Science College) "harvest" energy from garbage

a a a

LIPOR and Porto University (Science College) are developing a technology able to "harvest" energy from waste management units.

"IC&DT” project funded by FCT and in partnership with the CeNTI (Nanotechnology Center Technical, functional and Smart Materials) and Minho University (ALGORITMI Centre) will develop thermoelectric nanogeradores capable of transforming the energy lost in the form of heat for machines, motors and in industrial processes such as composting, into electrical energy that can be injected into the power grid or used directly in the processes, thus improving your energy efficiency.
