In his research, Dr. Elbeshbishy works to minimize the environmental impact of waste while recovering value-added products from it. For example, through a process called anaerobic digestion, green bin waste can produce hydrogen gas, methane, alcohols or chemicals for many uses. Similarly, pulp and paper waste can produce biogases as fuel for cars. Landfill is spared and waste is usefully redirected.
