For Mexico City, a Repurposed Landfill

For Mexico City, a Repurposed Landfill | Geomatic | Scoop.it
Methane from a landfill will flow to a power plant, helping to keep the lights on in the city.

 

When Mexico City’s government shut down the giant Bordo Poniente landfill last December, officials announced that they had a full-blown plan for the site...the city aims to capture the methane gas produced by the landfill to fuel a power plant that could supply electricity to as many as 35,000 homes.

This article describes the idea in the making in order to save energy and to put a power plant into a land fill in order to create endless light supply in the city. This new response to power outages is important to look at and ask questions on how the rest of the powere suge and plants will make do with this new repurposed landfill.

Mexico City is making huge advancements in thier plans of turning methane, created from landfils, to create energy that can be used elsewhere in our everyday needs. This new and recycled energy can be used to produce heat, create light sources and run automobiles. Trash is not going away, so it is a perfect idea to turn trash into treasures. Greater potentials can arise from these advancements and changes.

I think it's great that Mexico City is leading by example and reusing the landfill. The article discussing how the United States has had plans of figuring out what to do with the gases that come from landfills but nothing ever actually happens. The U.S just keeps rebuilding more landfill cells. The methane gas produced by the landfill is going to fuel a power plant that could supply elecricity to about 35,000 homes.
