Using landfills to generate electricity is not a new concept for the City of Toronto. The city is now taking the energy generatingcapability of waste to a new level, by working on a garbage truck thatcan run on biogas generated from garbage.
The new trucks will be equipped with a Cummins Westport ISL G engine which can run onnatural gas or biogas generated from local landfills around Toronto. The creators also opine that in the near future the trucks might even runon the organic waste they pick up from stops around the city.
