Popular Science has a report on a machine that uses plasma to render anything short of nuclear waste down to is base elements, and use the results to drive generators that produce more power than the machine uses. Its creator has big plans to save the world, one landfill at a time. Hopes are that once in place, we will solve our garbage problems, and be producing cheep easy electricity from the junk we throw away. Here's to hoping, maybe this one will pan out, according to the article, it is being implemented in several cities across the country."
