Portable Biogas Bags
A German company called (B)energy generates biogas from organic wastes and manure .The company’s work doesn’t just end there. They transfer this gas into special bags that weigh around 9 lbs and sell them. These bags can easily be used to make your gas burner work for at least 4 hours.

Turning Used Diapers Into Good Energy
In the Netherlands, a waste treatment plant called ARN has come up with a plan to build a factory where a reactor is installed . This reactor will be heated to 480 degrees Fahrenheit. This heat will melt the diaper into liquid form, the heat will also kill all the bacteria, and the resulting product can be recycled into eco-friendly plastic, biomass, or even gas.

Growing Genetically Modified Plants. They Help Clean The Air
Some researchers of Washington University have discovered a very unique method that uses plants to clean air which cause different diseases. To aid this problem, they suggest us to grow genetically modified plants also known as filter houseplants — these plants help purify the air at your homes or in our surroundings (1). The teams genetically modified plants by including a gene that is present in all mammals and injected it into Epipremnum aureum plants (2). Their researches have shown that the amount of benzene has been reduced by 75% by placing such plants in their homes

Governance

Transparent "deliberative processes" to determine the common good is what we need!
"In other words, parliament should do its job properly rather than choosing the lazy path of enacting deliberately unclear laws." (Janet Albrechtsen 12/2/20).Our government is using Royal Commissions, regulators and the courts to try and change things rather than governing.It is clear that our parliament cannot effectively find consensus that represents community views on multiple issues. Political gaming has overtaken fact driven process and policy.The time has come for Australia to follow the enlightened examples coming from other countries, and start using community based "deliberative democracy" processes to transparently determine the "common good" for challenging policy issues!

Agriculture

Huge opportunities in plant-based meats
Australians are good at producing beef and should continue to do so. Adding a focus on alternative protein, setting our sights early on taking advantage of our agricultural science and supporting it with significant investment to develop the products, services and supply chains will enable Australia to get ahead of the curve of opportunity.More than 12 per cent of the Australian population are already vegetarians. The global alternative protein market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 9.5 per cent from 2019 to reach US$17.9 billion by 2025. www.innovationaus.com/australia-must-tap-plant-based-meat-boom/
