Front page Digg item about a new garbage treatment plant that uses plasma to vaporize trash while generating energy.

But where does the poo go?

Excerpt from the inhabitat story linked from Digg:

“Recently St. Lucie County in Florida announced that it has teamed up with Geoplasma to develop the United States’ first plasma gasification plant.

The plant will use super-hot 10,000 degree fahrenheit plasma to effectively vaporize 1,500 tons of trash each day, which in turn spins turbines to generate 60MW of electricity - enough to power 50,000 homes!”
