Gas energy system unveiled at Deerfield landfill
"In the original 'Back to the Future' movie, Doc Brown uses plutonium to power his time-traveling DeLorean.C'mon, Mr. Fusion. Any day now...
In the sequel, he no longer needs radioactive chemicals to fuel the vehicle, because the DeLorean has been modified to run on common household trash.
Turning garbage into energy was science fiction in the 1980s, but is now a reality in Cumberland County.
The Cumberland County Improvement Authority cut the ribbon Friday on a new gas energy system at its Deerfield Township landfill, which converts methane gas from decaying trash into electrical power."
