Researchers Plan Comprehensive Study of Waste-to-Energy v. Landfill

Renewable Energy - Fri, 2018-02-16 09:36

With waste-to-energy technology taking a front seat in the effort to deal with municipal waste in growing regions, some question whether these processing facilities aren’t doing more harm to the environment than good. Researchers at the University of Buffalo are planning to address that concern with what it says will be one of the most comprehensive and quantitative comparisons between municipal waste combustion and landfilling.
