Why world is not going to produce fuel from solid waste although a lot of research has been done?
Producing useful fuel from waste not only environment friendly but also fulfils the fuel requirement and a good way for waste disposal. Every now and then we read articles and news that some research group has successfully demonstrated the production of fuel like methane or diesel etc from waste. But if the is so useful as we read why we hesitate to go for it in a large scale.
Probably because (a) the NIMBY factor applies (Not In My Back Yard) where government's propose that they build a fuel from waste facility and everywhere that they propose to build it, says NIMBY. Everyone wants one but no one wants it sited near them - always somewhere else. (b) some plastics when burnt can release poisonous dioxins.
