With the current climate crisis going on around the world, the need for sustainable energy sources have never been greater. Using waste products from everyday life as feedstock for sustainable biofuels helps reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel usage and from landfills across America. Colleges and Universities are in a unique position due to having a relatively consistent population every year that uses electricity and heat while producing a consistent amount of waste. Using the food and green waste generated on campus at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), the campus could generate biofuels to replace fossil fuels for heating and campus run vehicles.
