Organic materials can also be used to generate electricity, including lumber,crops, and manure. During demolition or farming, this kind of waste can be burned to generate heat.
At landfills, methane gas, a byproduct of garbage decomposition, is collected and used for energy generation. Gas from landfills is also used as a fuel substitute for fossil fuels.
Rather than disposing of waste, it now heats nearby homes. Similarly to hot sewage, waste heat can be utilized for heating and cooling purposes as well.
Using anaerobic digesters, collect millions of gallons of food waste. As a result, methane is released.It is powerful gas used to generate electricity and other forms of renewable energy.
