Given the number of tofu makers worldwide, I’m sure challenges remain in terms of recycling more water from bean curd factories and reducing pollution.
But I certainly perked up when I saw this Reuters report from August 2008. I’m glad this tofu maker is turning the water into “bio” gas and supplying energy to two bean curd factories and 20 households.
I’m also pleased that Reuters visited this factory and distributed the video online.
In the United States, it’s easy for some in media companies to dismiss this type of story. The presumption is that people in the United States would not be interested in the story.
But I was. And I think others would learn from it, too.
