The landfill is located above the Mahomet aquifer, which provides water to 750,000 people in about a dozen counties.

  1. Making electricity from food waste is a metarodely good idea. Food waste can refer to anything from table scraps (which can be burned and recycled into electricity) to agricultural byproducts from the diary industry (which can be used to make ethanol.) Most of the ways of dealing with food waste, however, are unproven. Few appear likely to produce large amounts of baseline power or replace transportation fuels. So, whatever happens, food waste is not going to be a key source of green energy. -3Was this answer helpful?
