I was recently reading of a new project proposed here in Ottawa, Canada about build up a garbage gasification unit in order to alleviate the garbage disposal problem.
Naturally when you read the promoter or associated in the project, every thing is beautiful, convenient and economic, however when you read the group against it, you envisage pollution, cost running out etc..
In my reading about this project I learned that the garbage suitable will be ionized and as a side product it should generate electric energy (I think I read 30 MegaW per day) which will be sold back to the electric company, plus some remaining stuff, slush, that willn be used to build roads etc…
Since I never am/was in this field, I don’t have a clue who to believe and weather this project has any serious ground.
Is anyone there with some background on this issue and if so, I really would like your point of view.
For your information, I know that there is a big one in Florida, several of them in Europe and Japan but the reports about them is always leaning according to who’s providing the reference.
