Fuel from whiskey and a dress from citrus: how to earn on processing

Fuel from whiskey and a dress from citrus: how to earn on processing

So far, in Russia, more than 90% of garbage is sent to landfills and landfills, foreign countries realized that waste can become raw materials for new industries.

DEEPLA trends have collected six examples of effective businesses, which are based on processing.

Bi -fuel from coffee grounds (Great Britain) In 2013, student Arthur Kay noticed an oily film on a cold American.

He had a hypothesis that coffee grounds contains oil and, therefore, can be used as a source of fuel.

Studies have confirmed this idea, and BIO-Bean has grown from it.

The company processes coffee thick on an industrial scale.

Waste is entered in Bio-Bean from coffee houses, as well as from enterprises for frying grains and the manufacture of soluble coffee.

Every day the company receives about 40 tons of coffee grounds.

The processing process takes a couple of hours and consists of several stages.

First, the thick is dried.

Then evaporated with an organic solvent.

It allows you to separate the oil from other components.

At the third stage, it is turned into biofuel by re -element.

And the waste that remained after all stages is pressed into fuel granules, they are called pellets.

Thus, two types of fuel are obtained from coffee grounds.

BIO-Bean startup development is already being used.

In 2017, London authorities transferred part of the famous red buses to coffee biofuel.

And the British pellets use houses for heating.

Pellets are characterized by a low moisture content, excellent bulk density, high ash melting and good strength.

They can be used instead or along with dry logs to heat the room.

Now such pellets are sold throughout the UK in large supermarkets, DIY and garden centers.

In the production of whiskey, several types of waste are formed, including: DRAFF – the remains of grain after drying; Bard – a liquid that remains after distillation, often goes to livestock feed.

Every year, Scottish producers of malt whiskey leave behind 750 thousand tons of dragon and 2 billion l barda.

Celtic Renewables found a way to effectively use these waste, creating biofuel based on biobutanol.

When creating a new type of fuel, the company relied on existing developments of the beginning of the 20th century.

Then the biobutanol was produced from corn or molasses.

Green economy How the production of biofuel works, and what problems does it solve In 2017, Celtic Renewables held the first test drive of a car, seasoned with new biofuels.

As the test showed, you can use it without modification of the engine.

In 2018, the startup received financial support in the amount of £ 9 million from the Scotland government for the construction of the plant.

It was planned to open it in the spring of 2021, however, due to the pandemia of the Covid-19, the launch was postponed.

In the future, Celtic Renewables will process about 50 thousand tons of whiskey production per year.

The company plans to receive raw materials directly from the production plants.

Now in Scotland there are more than 130 such enterprises.

Celtic Renewables also invited residents of the country to support a startup.

Anyone can become a shareholder of the new plant and support the green economy of Great Britain.

The founder of the company Martin Tangni explains how biobutanol is created from the waste production waste Citrus fabrics (Italy) The Italian company Orange Fiber produces environmentally friendly pure fabrics from citrus waste that remain with juice manufacturers.

The company purchases raw materials throughout the country.

Every year, Italians form 70 thousand tons of citrus waste.

The technology is based on the extraction of high -quality cellulose from the orange peel.

The innovation process was patented in 2014.

Many designers have already shown interest in such fabric.

For example, in 2017, Orange Fiber entered into an agreement with the Salvatore Ferragamo fashion house.

In the same year, on the day of the Earth, brands presented the first joint collection of clothing.

This cooperation was the first big step of Orange Fiber in the international market of environmentally friendly materials for the fashion industry.

Green economy How to facilitate clothing disposal: three solutions The even better famous partner of Orange Fiber is the Swedish brand H&M.

In 2015, Orange Fiber received a Global Change Award from H&M Foundation.

With this, their close interaction began.

Italian developers were offered to create a top in the style of boho from environmentally friendly material as part of the new H&M Conscious Exclusive collection.

Consumers liked the new development.

Top was sold out within a few hours after the official start of sales.

On that day, the actress and model Chilin Lin appeared at the ceremony in the dress, which was created from citrus fabric.

net Aromatic flowering sticks (India) In India, there is a tradition of bringing flowers to temples and mosque as an offer, and then lower them along the river.

At the same time, no one thought for a long time that they destroy the river ecosystem.

Toxic fertilizers that are used for growing colors are mixed with water and poison the river inhabitants.

The founders of Phool have found a way to reduce the level of pollution.

The company introduced the technology of flower waste processing.

PHOOL contractors collect flowers in the churches of the city of KANPUR in Uttar-Pradesh.

During the day, movers go around 19 seats and get 8.

4 tons of colors.

Then floral waste is brought to the production of Phool.

In place they are weighed, separated from other types of waste and sorted by color.

After that they are sent to dry.

At the third stage, flowers are crushed to a state of powder.

It is subsequently mixed with water and aromatic oil.

At the output, an adhesive mixture is obtained.

Aromatic sticks are created from it.

The stems from the colors themselves go to the production of environmentally friendly fertilizers for plants.

Thanks to this initiative, it was possible to process 11 thousand tons of waste.

The project has already aroused interest throughout the country and focused on the existing problem.

As noted in the company, temples and religious organizations supported the mission of the enterprise, urging to deal with the centuries -old practice of waste reset to Gang.

Phool explains how the “Flower Cycle” works Skateboards from fishing nets (Chile) About 8 million tons of plastic enter the world ocean annually.

Of these, 640 thousand tons are on the network and other fishing gear.

Initially, fishing networks were made of natural materials and easily decomposed into the sea.

But about 40 years ago they began to be made of plastic.

Such networks are stronger, and they are easier to repair.

However, there is no infrastructure for their disposal now.

In 2010, three friends from California (David Story, Ben Nerpers and Kevin Achaern) created boards for skateboards from unsuitable fishing networks.

The idea of friends liked the Chili authorities.

In 2013, the state leadership asked them to come to the Kocholgua fishing village in the center of the country to develop business there.

Chile is the seventh largest fishing region in the world, and the problem of networks of networks for this country is relevant.

The new company is called Bureo.

She concludes agreements with fishing communities throughout South America.

Fishermen receive a bonus for each returned kilogram of networks.

Then the company hires employees who sort, clean, cut, pack and mark the networks.

Then they are sent to the processing center in the south of Chile.

They create granules that become a material for the manufacture of skateboards, solar glasses, thermal glasses, t -shirts, reusable forks and spoons, and surf accessories.

In 2020, the company processed 35 tons of fishing networks.

Ben Nerpers talks about the history of the emergence of the company In 2018, Bureo signed an agreement with the famous Carver Skateboards brand on large -scale production of environmentally friendly skateboards.

To create one skateboard requires 3 square meters.

M network.

Compared to traditional production, this method reduces 70%greenhouse emissions.
