Fuji to Use Trash as Energy

Trash is energy.

That’s the new mantra from Fujifilm, those enlightened makers of all things digital imaging, who have decided to power a South Carolina facility using methane gas from a nearby landfill. The facility is currently powered by oil and natural gas, two fuel sources that will eventually run dry. But garbage is something that’s always around.

Fujifilm says this endeavor, to be undertaken in partnership with a renewable energy developer, will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 10 percent or more.

Conveniently, the landfill solves its problem of excessive methane emissions, for which it was facing potentially dire consequences from local authorities.
