Food Scraps Get a Bold New Life (Press Release Source: Institute of Industrial Science, The University of Tokyo)

Excuse the mess! Scientists turn food scraps like banana peels, seaweed and cabbage leaves into construction materials that are 'at least as strong as concrete' (News Source: Daily Mail)
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-9621137/Scientists-turned-food-scraps-like-banana-peels-cabbage-leaves-construction-materials.html
Researchers in Japan created a way to turn food waste, such as banana peels or cabbage leaves into building products for construction
They used a 'heat pressing' concept that turns wood powder into construction materials
They tweaked that by using vacuum-dried food scraps instead and mixing the food powder with water, seasonings and put it at a temperature to test the strength, taste, smell and appearance
All of the materials exceeded the researchers strength targets, except for pumpkins
Chinese cabbage leaves 'produced a material over three times stronger than concrete'
The material was not negatively impacted by rot, fungi, or insects and there was no 'appreciable changes' to appearance or taste after being exposed to air for four months
The World Food Program estimates that one-third of the world's food is wasted every year, or $1 trillion worth

Scientists create sponge to soak up phosphate, a dangerous water pollutant, so it can be reused (News Source: Daily Mail)
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-9637929/Scientists-create-sponge-soak-phosphate-reused.html
Northwestern University scientists created a sponge that can soak up and reuse phosphate
The sponge, known as Phosphate Elimination and Recovery Lightweight (PEARL) is made up of a porous, flexible material
It can capture up to 99 percent of phosphate ions in polluted water
Phosphorus leaking into waterways causes algae blooms, which cause plants and fish to be starved of oxygen
