Waste Management investing in Biogas

Waste Management has forged an agreement with Harvest Power to expand its organics recycling facilities across the United States  and Canada. These operations will capture the gas released by organic wastes and convert it into, among other things, Compressed Natural Gas.

Methane gas released from decomposing organic waste is a huge polluter world-wide. By capturing this gas, not only is pollution is reduced, but the captured gas can be converted into electricity or compressed into CNG or LNG to power vehicles.
