Today’s Forbes reports that Energy 1 Inc. is working on a Florida hydrogen initiative to convert orange peels to hydrogen. Orange peels, which comprise a significant portion of Florida’s solid waste, release the hydrogen-rich gas methanol. The project involves harvesting this methanol and using it for energy at a model interstate rest stop. It’s a win-win for the state of Florida, as one of their primary waste forms is converted from trash to electricity. In the process, a road show is created for millions of motorists demonstrating the power of hydrogen.
