Discovery Channel recently created a slide show celebrating the winners of Tech Awards, hosted by the Tech Museum of Innovation. It is an annual award given out to contestants for technological innovations in the fields of environment, education, economic development, equality and health. Five winners for each of of the previously mentioned categories are selected and are the recipient of $50,000 split between them. One of the winners created a means to produce fuel using plant oil. VWP (Vereinigte Werkst'tten f'r Pflanzen'ltechnologie), asked the question "What if producing food also produced fuel?" which led to the creation of the project "Carbon-Dioxide Recycle Concept for Food and Fuel." More of the winners and their winning innovative ideas can be seen here.
