Electricity from Trash

hurricane climate change methane garbage
Capturing methane from rotting garbage will help reduce climate change due to greenhouse gases.

Waste Management is creating electricity from rotting garbage at 100 of its landfills, and plans more such projects. This is a double win, as the methane gas produced by the garbage has a 21 times worse greenhouse gas effect than carbon dioxide. But now it can be captured to create energy rather than being emitted into the atmosphere.
