There are various new and emerging technologies that are able to produce energy from waste and other fuels without direct combustion. Several of them have the potential to produce more electric power from the same amount of fuel than would be possible by direct combustion. A few of the non-thermal technologies include anaerobic digestion (biogas rich in methane) and fermentation production (ethanol, lactic acid, hydrogen). Though no specific method was mentioned for this desk, we’d imagine that either of the two mentioned here would suit it, as both would be safe for home use.
