Fort Morgan, Colorado is the latest U.S. city poised to reap benefits from converting waste to energy. Recently, the Fort Morgan City Council unanimously approved a memorandum of understanding with Creative Energy Systems (CES) regarding the construction of a waste-to-energy facility.
The CES plant will convert garbage collected from local area landfills into electricity through a process called pyrolysis that will help power the community.
Fort Morgan City Manager Jeff Wells outlined several key reasons why he believes that the CES plant will be a boon for his city.
Wells was particularly excited about the volume of landfill waste that could be reduced with the CES plant:

Innovative approaches to achieving America’s energy independence are already underway in towns like Fort Morgan.
We hope that local, state, and federal policymakers continue to take notice of what happens when communities commit to recovering energy from waste, and we look forward to learning more about how energy recovery is benefiting their community.
