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...
