We have heard of recycling and apparently one of them includes this one which calls for the conversion of landfills and then soliciting methane gas landfills. If not trapped, the rising methane becomes a greenhouse gas at least 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide and accounts for 25 percent of all methane associated with human behavior.
In the conversion process, pipes running throughout the landfill vacuum up the gases and feed them into huge combustion engines that turn a generator. The resulting electricity is then transmitted to homes and offices via the electrical grid.
This may not only be great news for finding other means of generating power but can perhaps create more jobs while protecting the environment in the process. You can view the video report here.
