Waste to energy power plants to kill two birds with one stone

Energy demand is increasing, such as waste production: could we solve both problems with one unique solution? As the world population grows and living standards continue to rise, the consumption of goods and energy is increasing too, which has significant environmental consequences. The correlation between income and energy consumption remains very strong; additionally, higher consumption
