Title: Novel Co-Culture Process for Pretreatment of Food Waste for Alcohol Fuel Synthesis and Methanogenesis

Food waste, the single-largest component of all waste in the United States, is not valued as a reusable resource. College of the Atlantic students are designing a closed loop process that uses fungi to pre-treat food waste to efficiently generate n-butanol. This alternative to gasoline requires no engine modification, and this process could keep food waste out of landfills.
