Hmm... That's how they ran Bartertown, except with pig poo. Seriously though, it's not that far fetched. WKU has a number of experiments involving reusing solid waste as fuel in some capacity or another. They currently have a small scale model that burns chicken dung mixed with coal that increases coals efficiency and reduces pollutants. They're also working on using the heat from decomposing leaves to heat greenhouses. I still don't understand why landfills aren't burning their methane to generate electricity or why thermal depolymerization isn't getting the attention it should.

I'm glad to see they are stepping up to the plate.
