As part of Blacksburg Sustainability Week 2018, Sustainable Blacksburg presents a Mobile Biodigester Demonstration at the Squires Student Center Plaza on the campus of Virginia Tech.

Who doesn’t love a win-win-win? Come see for yourself how microorganisms can reclaim the useful energy in food waste, help to divert organic material from our local landfills, while also creating a high nitrogen and phosphorus waste product that can fertilize future crop production!

Created by mechanical engineering students at Virginia Tech under the direction of Dr. Steven Cox, the entire food-to-energy conversion process happen right on the mobile biodigester trailer and can create enough energy to power an entire home!

The event is family friendly.

Blacksburg Sustainability Week, a collaboration between Sustainable Blacksburg, the Town of Blacksburg and Virginia Tech is celebrating its 12th year in 2018.
