Bread energy

While the exhibit “Pain Couture ” where French designer Jean-Paul Gaultier fashioned dresses with bread is about to close in Paris (till 10th October at the Cartier Foundation), Sapporo Breweries, Shimadzu and Hiroshima University have succeeded an experiment to steadily generate hydrogen and methane gas using waste from the bread-making process.

The first technology of its kind, which is also applicable to waste materials from production of other food products, is planned to be put into practical use in fiscal 2006 to contribute to the utilization of energy stored in organic matter.
