Garbage Powered Truck

Sounds strange? Apparently not, as the British who reside in Huddersfield has a modified three-and-a-half ton Smith Edison Ford Transit garbage truck which hauls garbage from the neighborhood, disposing them at a nearby Energy from Waste power station and recycling center. This center will burn all the qualified collected garbage while harvesting electricity generated from it to be used for tomorrow’s route. In addition, all the collected garbage also produces approximately 10 megawatts or additional electricity each day which is transferred over to the power grid. This truck has a maximum speed of 50 miles per hour and is an idea which the rest of the world could make do with.
