From Waste To power…

FILED IN: The Biofiles

The Waste Management company in the US went very green many years ago. It has built almost 100 methane-powered generating plants at landfills around the country.
Now, it is negotiating to build something similar in Florida’s Collier County. “The facility would generate 4 megawatts of power or enough to create electricity for 2,500 to 3,000 homes using the methane gas created by decomposing trash.”
