Making an Impact Across The Globe With Discarded Materials

The first step is to separate the garbage, or municipal solid waste, at a transfer station. Glass and metal won’t work in the gasification process and should be recycled anyway; things like wood chips, grass, tires and even diapers will work. “If it gets really hot and melts, that’s not a good substance, If it gets hot and turns into gas, like wood in a fireplace, that’s good.”Any carbon-based substance will act as a feedstock for the conversion process.
