Good news, everyone. General Motors is planning to make ethanol fuel from garbage. That's like killing a flock of birds with one stone!

GM to make biofuel out of garbage

DETROIT, Michigan (AFP) — General Motors Corp. is planning on making biofuel with garbage at a cost of less than a dollar a gallon, the company's chief has said.


The prestigious Argonne National Laboratory analyzed Coskata's process and found it generates up to 7.7 times the amount of energy used and reduces CO2 emissions by up to 84 percent compared with a well-to-wheel analysis of gasoline.

So not only does it reduce garbage by putting it to good use, it's cheap to produce and reduces carbon dioxide emissions as well.

What a brilliant measure until the sunlight to petrol process can be made viable in a larger scale.
