I think the idea of using waste to generate energy is very interesting.
Unfortunately, where I live (a satellite city of brasília, brazil, we don't even have residecial trash separation for recycling. The separation is done at trash collection centers where many recyclable products are not separated. I would like to see more awareness of this problem by our politicians, who seem to only worry about being reelected.

That's a good idea. Now there's a lot more things we can do to our waste. Although I doubt this is any cheaper than the energy we get from other sources, doing this research now might just give better (and hopefully less expensive) results in the future.

How you say ´burning rubbish to make an energy is not new´, but it´s demand some kind of an ecological awareness among an ordinary people same as the politicians. Your´s reports about future cities are one the best, they clearly show thoughts of the 21st century about the future cities, how they need to develop, in which way... Well done!

Politicians have to "worry about reelection", they are generally useless and unemployable" so getting on the "Old boys network" is their only other available option for continuing in the "way of life" to which they have just become accustomed !

yes, it will be one of the most difficult projects to accomplish since the return rate is distant in time and beneficients undefined – our grandchildren? who cares?
