The End of Landfills? Waste Pyrolysis to Energy
This is an exciting technology--one of many "waste to energy" technologies that are treating garbage as valuable feedstocks for the production of energy and other valuable products.
Anyone who remembers the great landfill avalanche of 2505 from the movie Idiocracy, will instantly understand the unlikelihood of such a huge landfill ever existing--at least in North America or the rest of the developed world. Garbage will be considered too valuable to just let it sit around and take up space.
