Plasma Arc Waste Disposal Answered
I was watching the local news earlier... and they started talking about a new waste plant being built in Ft. Pierce, Florida.
Basically, they vaporize the trash and sewage sludge under a vacuum, and use the by product gases as fuel for the plant and power turbines. Steam is going to power a local juice plant. Solid by product (rocks and such) can be used for construction etc.
On top of that, the by product gas - when burned - is cleaner than burning natural gas or garbage. Even if you think climate change is a myth, I think you can appreciate cleaner air to breath :P This plant is going to eat up the local landfills too :)
I just thought it was pretty cool. This is the first plant in the United States and the third in the world (other two are in Japan and are much smaller).
