Waste to gaseous biofuel applications
Waste to energy plant exist in many urban areas of major cities. If properly designed they will not have any adverse effects on the nearby community. In many communities the waste to energy plant takes urban and trade waste and produces heat which may be distributed through district heating schemes or used to produce locally consumed electricity. Waste-to-Energy Plants are often an essential part of both the waste management and energy supply network.

Waste can be used as a feedstock for the production of green hydrogen
- New waste-to-hydrogen processes could contribute to a carbon negative future Converting solid waste into hydrogen is a key technology that can greatly reduce emissions.
