We’ve seen the potential of gasoline from algae, but there is also a push to turn trash into gas – a concept that has many appeal factors. Byogy, out of Bakersfield, CA, is claiming its process converts trash, manure (both animal and human), landscaping wastes, and other food wastes into high-grade, 95 octane gasoline at a production cost of only $1.20-$2.00 per gallon.
The process and company have yet to prove themselves, and a facility won’t be online until two years from now. But Byogy hopes that by 2022, it can fill 2% of the nation’s gas tanks.
Sounds pretty cool - I'm all for reusing garbage.
