The Jet Fuel that Comes from Garbage
With capitalism, came a great sense of power and consumerism. There are those who accuse the modern world of their incapacity of recycling and reusing objects instead of buying more and more, but there are others who consider it a symptom of progress.
In either of those cases, it is almost globally agreed that the garbage levels are increasing terrifyingly fast. What are we going to do with so much garbage? Every country produces their own, what if we reach a point where there is too much garbage to control the detrimental effects that it has on the environment?
As much as it sounds like not true, British airways are planning to use garbage as jet fuel. Kilograms of garbage can be used to power the engines of planes, and not only decrease the garbage levels of the country, but also serve a very important role in transportation.
London liked the idea so much that the city decided to pay the British Airlines to take the trash and use it to power their planes as jet fuel. Millions of dollars were actually spent in waste to be turned into fuel. Not only that, but the fuel is renewable, and can mean a significant advancement going for society going forward.
The green plan to turn garbage into fuel is not a new one, but it is only being effectively put into perspective these last couple of years. The British Airlines will start developing a production plant together with the corporation that is specialized in the industry of creating jet fuel, and that company will also be responsible for taking some of the trash produced by London to be used by the airline firm in the near future.
The announcement and the fact that the involved parties have already begun sorting out the garbage is already a big win for the environment.
