In this experiment, waste paper will be used as raw material for the production of ethanol. Paper will be pre-treated (chopped and mixed with water), digested with a safe commercial enzyme and fermented with regular grocery store yeast. Ethanol generated by these two reactions will be then monitored through the use of either an ethanol sensor or a dye that, reacting selectively with alcohol, will change colour revealing its presence.

In questo esperimento, la carta da riciclare sarà utilizzata come materia prima per la produzione di etanolo. La carta sarà pre-trattata (tritata e mescolata con acqua), digerita con un enzima commerciale sicuro e fermentata con semplice lievito alimentare. L'etanolo generato da queste due reazioni sarà poi monitorato attraverso l'uso di un sensore di etanolo o di un colorante che, reagendo selettivamente con l'alcol, cambierà colore rivelando la sua presenza.

The laboratory activity is planned in one part as theoretical training under the guidance of the teacher and in another as practice where students become the main protagonists of all phases of the work (from design to evaluation). The aim of the laboratory activity is to produce the synthetic urine, from which the struvite (rich of phosphorous) is extracted, and to build a simple prototype reactor for the extraction of struvite from synthetic wastewater.
