Food-Energy-Water Nexus Solutions towards Global Sustainability
MSU Anaerobic Digestion Research and Education Center (ADREC),
Department of Biosystems & Agricultural Engineering, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI 48824
Rapid growth of the world’ population, along with accelerating industrialization and expanding urbanization, quicklypushes the global community to face the serious challenges (i.e., food, energy, water, air pollution, climate change, and diseases) of living in the Anthorpocene. Food, energy, and water (FEW) are the most significant ones among them, where innovations are urgently needed to develop system-basedFEW solutions. In response to this critical need, the MSU ADREC is applying a variety of chemical and biological approaches to develop integrated systemsthat can sustainably address the FEW nexus challenge. The following topics are included in this lecture: 1) anaerobic digestion – new roles for carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus sequestration; 2) combined chemical and biological process to recycle carbon dioxide for biofuel/chemical production; 3) algae biorefining of food and chemical production; and 4) examples of integrated systems in real-world applications.
