Plasma Gasification




Plasma gasification may be a relatively clean and safe way of turning a city's trash into energy. The process "zaps" (it's the technical term) municipal garbage, tearing it apart molecule by molecule, leaving a burnable gas and an obsidian-like slag. In theory these by-products are then stripped of anything harmful. Proposals for gasification plants are on the table in Ottowa and New Orleans.
