    All we need to do to make this garbage burning more earth friendly is a way to capture the byproducts of burning and use them for something else. Burnt stuff becomes carbon. There are LOTS of uses for carbon. I have some in my Britta Water Filter.

    We can solve 2 problems with this idea. Landfill congestion and power generation. FREE fuel to make electricity? What's not to like?

    really cool! Why... why aren't we doing this..???

    cool, can they take some of the U.S. trash too?

  • Casey Caplowe

    I was really excited about this until reading that they're simply burning all that trash. No I guess i'd like to know more as to whether or not that's better or worse than burning other kinds of stuff for energy. I guess if its no worse than burning, say coal, then we might as well.... less stuff to bury in the ground.

      True - a bit anticlimactic. This PDF might give some hope though- http://www.avfallsverige.se/fileadmin/uploads/forbranning_eng.pdf

      "Sweden has had strict standards limiting emissions from
      waste incineration since the mid-1980s. Most emissions
      have fallen by between 90 and 99 per cent since then
      thanks to ongoing technical development and better
      waste sorting."
