Waste-to-Energy – a growing envirnomental solution

Waste-to-Energy (WTE) – a highly efficient way to create energy (electricity and/or heat) by utilizing a variety of waste products – is becoming a growing trend around the country.

A rising US trend - waste-to-energy facilities

I’ve written several blog posts about this successful and fascinating process.

There are 89 Waste-to-Energy facilities scattered across the U.S. Yet in the past several days I’ve read about a number of others either under construction or on the drawing boards.

Seems that stimulus money is being put to good use. From biomass and WTE projects in Virginia to an Organics-to-Energy Biogas Facility in San Jose, California, states are recognizing that turning what once was trash into electricity is a solid investment in energy independence.

In these challenging economic times, its heartening to see some city and state governments stepping forward with vision, willing to stick their necks out to create a better future.
