Turning trash into electricity
Down the road from GreatPoint Energy's coal-to-natural gas plant is Ze-Gen, which is also using gasification but with a different feedstock: garbage.
Ze-Gen is testing a method to use high-temperature gasification on construction debris, a process that makes a gas that can be burned to make electricity.
IST Energy is another company that plans to turn trash into energy but with units big enough to fit onto truck flatbeds.
