Transforming Communities: Harnessing the Power of Peanut Shells for Renewable Energy

17 Settembre 2023

We thank God for the efforts that local businesses are making to transform local communities. The population in Ticino Cordova, Argentina, is illuminated by peanut shells. The economy of this town of 3000 people is connected to peanut production. In fact, Cordova produces 80% of Argentinian peanuts, and it is estimated that annually 45000 tonnes of peanut shells are wasted. If the waste is accumulated in the field, it can cause wildfires.
