- Friday's SF Chronicle Business section had a highly encouraging article, "Tech Awards: Lauding Innovation". RPCVs will be especially interested in reading some wonderful news. Check out:
The article includes:
1. An anaerobic fixed-film reactor that turns organic waste (including cow waste) into methane that can be used for electricity or cooking gas. The innovator is the founder of the Global Network for Environment and Economic Dev. Research in Nigeria.
2. A zinc-air fuel cell that can power & light a home for $8/mo.
3. Ultra Rice, a pasta-like nutritional supplement that tastes and looks like rice, but
provides a child with micro-nutrients for about 41 cents A YEAR!!!
GOOD NEWS and news that can truly add enormous gratitude during these special holidays.
