Electricity from garbage as in Sweden, Mexico.

In India garbage is a huge issue. If we can use garbage for generating fuel less garbage will be lying around and less for land filling so better and cleaner road and environment with new source of electricity. Sweden has already implemented it and they don't have garbage at all. We should try to bring this technology to India and use our garbage for generating electricity and make India more beautiful.

This is how the waste-to-energy process works: After recyclable content has been removed, the garbage is placed in incinerators that produce heat or energy, which is then transported to nearby homes. From the ashes, small pieces of metal, which do not burn, are separated and recycled, while those of porcelain and tile are sifted to extract gravel, which is used in road construction. The remaining one percent goes into landfills. And though garbage-infused smoke sounds highly poisonous, thanks to electric filters that give the particles a negative electric charge, in Sweden the smoke is almost entirely nontoxic carbon dioxide and water, which are cleaned again before release.

There are other countries like north Mexico which are doing a similar thing
