Decomposing trash produces methane, a landfill gas that can be used to produce electricity or heat. Since methane is a greenhouse gas and most landfills don’t produce enough of it to make energy production worthwhile, many dumpsites burn, or flare, the methane away so that the Continue reading Landfills can make a profit from all their rotting waste and a new patent explains exactly how to make the most out of the stinky garbage sites.
