Turning Your Leftovers Into Fuel

Even if you don’t want to eat them, your apple cores still have plenty of energy left to give. SciShow explores how cities are capturing that energy and turning it into fuel. This episode was produced in collaboration with and sponsored by Emerson. http://www.emerson.com/ilovestem

Hosted by: Hank Green
