Recycling Garbage by the tons?

Wow! I just read a great article about a company that recycles raw garbage.
This is very exciting at so many levels! Could you imagine a day where landfills are a thing of the past. I could not pass on telling you about it.

The company, Plasco Energy Group claims to be able to take raw garbage and reduce/recycle it to the following usable products:
  • Electricity - "the only technology that can recover more than a megawatt-hour of net power per ton of waste processed."
  • Potable Water
  • Commercial Salt
  • Construction Aggregate
  • Agricultural Fertilizer

They currently operate two working plants: one in Ottawa, Canada and one in Castillgali, Spain. Another plant is currently underway in Alberta, Canada. Los Angeles, CA is under negotiation to build one there.

I wonder if there are other companies out there working on similar technologies...
