CR&R Gets Funded for Garbage into Energy

October 21, 2015 was the day targeted in the iconic 1985 fantasy film Back to the Future with its celebration of the “Mr. Fusion Energy Compactor” for turning garbage into energy.

Indeed Mr. Fusion is with us now, although we call it the anaerobic digester. All manner of organic waste is processed into biogas, and upgraded into biomethane, suitably for fueling vehicles or for injection into the pipeline grid.

Appropriately, California’s CR&R Waste & Recycling, which expects by this coming fourth quarter to be producing organic refuse-derived biomethane to fuel its natural gas truck fleet (F&F, September 21) has just been awarded $900,000 by California’s South Coast Air Quality Management District to help see it though.

Meanwhile, anyone have a flux capacitor? We’d like to take a peek at 2045.
