27-Year-Old Student Turns Food Waste Into Solar Panels

Renewable energy and food waste are both relevant topics nowadays. And the project we would like to talk about in this article is related to both those issues.

The James Dyson Award celebrates the designers of new problem-solving ideas. Recently a 27-year-old Filipino student won the James Dyson sustainability prize for creating a system called AuREUS (Aurora renewable energy & UV sequestration).

Carvey Ehren Maigue created a system that absorbs stray UV light from sunlight and transforms it into renewable electricity. The AuREUS system works even during cloudy weather.

This already sounds like a great project. But the best part is probably that the panels are made out of food waste (fruits and vegetables).

The technology uses the natural scientific principles behind the northern lights.

We can attach these panels to windows and walls to turn buildings into vertical solar energy farms.

Carvey also thinks that the system can become a part of our clothes, cars, and houses.

We think that this system is such a genius way to turn food waste into energy. Did you like this article? Then be sure to read about other inventions that help the environment.


Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
