Orange Juice

The Florida Hydrogen Initiative has just awarded $500,000 to the fuel cell company ENER1 to develop a rest stop powered by a 10kW fuel cell. The fuel cell, moreover, will use hydrogen converted from methanol, which in turn will be created from theme park food waste and orange peels from citrus processing. The so-called "HyTech Rest Area" (the namer of which should be never allowed to work in public relations again) will be completed within the next 18 months.

Theme park waste and orange peels... could one imagine a more appropriate source for Florida power generation?
