Researchers from different institutions to bring together waste-to-energy technologies

October 12, 2021 |

In Illinois, a groundbreaking collaboration with a unique workforce development component will help to bring new technologies to the forefront of the bioenergy industry.

The Integrated Biochemical and Electrochemical Technologies (IBET) to Convert Organic Waste to Biopower collaboration will be led by the University of Michigan, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, and Northwestern University. It will bring together waste-to-energy (W2E) technologies from each institution and opportunities to test these technologies with industry.

The IBET collaboration uses developments in separations, advanced bioreactor design, and process modeling and control. This new platform will help industry produce high-purity methane from mixed organic waste streams at large scales and support a circular economy.
