What if I told you that the world could do away with trash, and turn it into something productive, Well Sweden is doing just that.
The country is revolutionizing the waste-infrastructure program to allow for the burning of trash. What was once a heavily pollutant filled process has been recreated and transformed into a modern way of creating tremendous amounts of energy, all while having a low waste output. They have even created a way to turn what little pollution gas there is into bio-fuel. There are 32 of these inspirational re conversion plants in Sweden, all dedicated to the transforming of trash into energy. It has even gotten to the point that in order to keep this going, the country is now importing trash from the UK, Italy, Norway and Ireland.
This could change the world entirely in how we dispose of our trash. It could allow the human race to leave less of an ecological footprint that will benefit the environment, and benefit us. This Video will explain this revolutionary concept a little more:
