The Guardian: "Ban food waste from landfill for renewable energy, warns thinktank"

Link to web site

"The government should ban all food leftovers from landfill by the end of the decade to boost technology which can turn it into energy, a study from thinktank CentreForum suggested on Tuesday.

"... The process could create enough biogas from green waste and purpose-grown crops to power more than 2.5m UK homes by 2020, the report said."

"... The independent report will be published this week at a conference held by the Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association (ADBA), which funded the study."
