$800K in bioenergy grants for UC Riverside for gasification, food waste projects

September 15, 2011 |

In California, Researchers at the University of California, Riverside’s Center for Environmental Research and Technology (CERT) received a $650,000 grant from the California Energy Commission, extending its commitment to $2 million to CERT for its patented steam hydrogasification reaction, which can turn any carbonaceous material – including waste from food, yards, sewage treatment facilities – into transportation fuels or natural gas.

The Center also received 100,000 from the UC Discovery Program, which pairs industry and university research to boost the California economy, will connect CERT researchers with Irvine-based Food Recycle Science Corporation, which has developed a process to turn food waste into a concentrated biomass.
