Israel to pay citizens to produce energy from trash

By nocamels October 24, 2010 Comments

Israel’s ministry of environmental protection has decided to  pay citizens that produce energy from their organic garbage, following some European countries’ example.  For every kilo-watt of energy produced from garbage, Israelis will receive $2.1 US.

According to estimates, the amount of garbage that could be re-used to produce energy is close to 7 million ton per year, or 160 mega-watts of energy.
