小编摘要:很不错的节省资源的途径哦~

 

美国最大的洋葱加工商Gills Onions上周五推出了一个新的发电系统,可以将洋葱汁转换为电能。据悉,这种用洋葱发电的新系统有望每年为该公司节省70万美元的电费,还可为公司减少高达三万吨的温室气体排放。公司合伙人表示,这一想法最初源于如何处理洋葱废料这个令人头痛的问题。经过多年研究后他们发现,将洋葱皮捣碎后榨出的洋葱汁含糖量极高,很容易滋生细菌。而在新系统中,这些细菌可以通过洋葱汁产生甲烷,然后将其用于发电。该绿色发电系统有望承担该公司35%到40%的用电量。

Onions make you cry, add flavor to food and are touted for their medicinal benefits. Now the vegetable has another use -- powering up green energy.

A new system debuts on Friday that converts onion juice into electricity at Gills Onions, the largest fresh onion processor in the United States.

The Oxnard, California-based company expects its new onion-fueled power to reduce its electric bill by $700,000 a year and cut its annual greenhouse gas emissions by up to 30,000 tons.

The happy ending to this green energy tale, however, started with another question: how to get rid of onion waste.
