Waste - to - Energy

-- Quote of the Day --
"Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents -
which, in prosperous circumstances, would have lain dormant."

~ Horace, Roman Poet

-- Composts Creating Energy --

We now have 115 gas-to-energy operations in North America; some were built for collecting gasses from existing and older landfill sites, others were built for collecting gas released from modern composting facilities.

One more was added in Quebec where a new facility is expected to produce enough electricity to power 6,500 houses simply by collecting and reusing methane released from the Saint-Nicephore landfill – further reducing negative impacts on the environment. 

Methane is at least 20 times more damaging to the environment then C02… so facilities like these are an excellent way of removing this threat and changing it to something society can benefit from. By reusing the gasses in this way, it reduces the amount of energy needed from other sources - like coal plants.
