  • On a new composting facility being built to begin processing some of NYC's 100 million tons of annual organic waste. Most organic waste is composted aerobically, a process which emits a lot of additional carbon (from the conventionally-powered machinery used to keep the windrows aerated). "But anaerobic digestion, in which food is broken down by microbes inside tall, airtight silos, has a real shot at scaling near densely populated areas. The footprint of such plants is relatively small, and their odors are mechanically contained, if they are operated properly. Digesters do cost more to build and run than compost sites, but they more than make up for that by generating two separate revenue streams: fertilizer and biogas, which is chemically similar to natural gas and can be burned to make heat and electricity."
