Basically, not only is Sweden reduced their waste output to begin with, but what little they do make turns into the energy they operate on. They're actually being paid by other countries right now to haul their waste away to use as fuel because they've literally started to run out of garbage.. It's a pretty awesome business model.
I'm wondering how feasible it would be to implement something like this in other countries? Thoughts on the issue of why it isn't being used more widely? I just read the article, I haven't had time to sit down and research it thoroughly.
