Utah is soon to open its first renewable energy plant turning organic waste into power
NORTH SALT LAKE, Utah (KUTV) — A new facility by Wasatch Resource Recovery (WRR) is working to capture bad methane gases before they’re released into the atmosphere from organic waste we create and turn it into energy.
“We hear about our carbon footprint a lot, food waste is big on our methane footprint,” said Morgan Bowerman of WRR.
Methane is a greenhouse gas that is damaging to the air. About 20 percent more potent then CO2 – and it’s released by organic waste created by Utahns.
