Turning industrial waste into livestock fodder

Around 80 billion litres of the fuel bioethanol are produced annually from fermented cereals. The yeast used in the process is discarded. Now, an academic/industry partnership led by Dr Emily Burton, from Nottingham Trent University, has led to a process that can retrieve proteins from what would otherwise have been discarded as cereal ‘waste’ which can then be used in chicken feed and commercial fish feed.

Supercomputer aids Bengali people and farmland

Researchers have used ARCHER, a state-of-the-art supercomputer, to create a model of the river channels in the Bengal delta – the largest river delta in the world – which will allow them to predict changes in tidal water level and salinity in the Bangladesh delta region, and to advise on irrigation and crop choice.
