Waste to Energy

Turning Garbage to Power

Hat tip: The Tank at National Review Online

We’ve all been drowned in the hype about biofuels. Well, researchers working on behalf of the Army have found a way to turn garbage into an electricity-generating fuel for use in Iraq. It seems that the extreme summer heat over there may be quite a help to the process. Should the system work, it could cut down on the number of fuel convoys, and therefore potential targets for terrorists. The technology probably has application to various Third World and hurricane cleanup energy needs as well.

I wonder how the antiwar leftists would react to this?
