Sustainable renewable energy from waste biomass

Biomass is a well-known source of energy but derivation of energy from biomass waste materials is relatively new and challenging. Biological methods are being developed to generate energy from biodegradable organic waste.

Project examples:

  • Landfill biocell technology for sustainable management of waste
  • Development of key parameters to determine biogas generation potential of waste
