Goterra turns food waste from restaurants, supermarkets and hotels into fertilizer and animal feed using a maggot-based decomposition process managed robotically in self-contained pods. The Australia-based company has seen steady growth through wildfires and the coronavirus pandemic.


Researchers make jet fuel from corn

June 30, 2020

A group of researchers from the Los Alamos National Laboratories has created and patented a process that would allow Tomahawk missiles to be fueled by ethanol production by-products. "We've patented a production process that makes JP-10 from domestic renewable feedstocks, such as corn bran," said Andrew Sutton, a conversion chemist.


Researchers print, tune graphene sensors to monitor food freshness, safety

June 30, 2020

Soap bubbles pollinated a pear orchard without damaging delicate flowers

June 30, 2020

Soap bubbles facilitated the pollination of a pear orchard by delivering pollen grains to targeted flowers, demonstrating that this whimsical technique can successfully pollinate fruit-bearing plants. The study suggests that soap bubbles may present a low-tech complement to robotic pollination technology designed to supplement the work of vanishing bees.
