Turning Trash Into Electricity Now a Reality?

Posted on 24 May 2010 by GranTorinoGuy

Remember on the movie “Back to the Future” where at the end Doc had a ‘Mr. Fusion’ trash dispenser on the Delorean that virtually turned trash into energy? Well, if you don’t remember that, then can you imagine a day where we take out the trash to only turn it into usable energy?

The day that we turn trash into electricity is here. Shown in the CNN video below is how the nation’s largest landfill in Las Vegas turns the trash into methane to produce electricity. Ingenious isn’t it?

Is it possible that this new method will break through to other areas of the United States? Just think, because of Americans wastefulness we would inch towards improving efficiency, the environment and reduce waste.
