My Landfill has Gas...

and it knows how to use it.   According to this report from the AP, BMW is using methane gas that is being  produced by a landfill nearby to power their plant.  Win Win:  Not only are they saving $1 million a year in energy costs but they have also reduced area co2 emissions by 34,000 tons in the last nine months of 2003.
"BMW is on target to eliminate annually the equivalent of emissions from more than 60,000 cars. "
Lets hope this idea catches on.
