Turning Trash Into Clean Energy - U.S. Lags Behind Europe

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Interesting piece from the NYTs about how Europe is far ahead of the US when it comes to using trash for clean energy. According to the Times, waste-to-energy plants are becoming common-place in Europe, with 29 such plants in Denmark alone and around 400 plants in total in Europe plus new ones on the way. The U.S. however is way behind with only 87 plants and all are super old. It'd be nice if the U.S. could get on board here and start using all the trash we create for energy...

I'm pretty sure - or let's say I hope so - that within the next years, we will do our best to catch up with Europe. Transforming waste into energy is such a great opportunity and people have to pay more attention to that.
