Utah’s rotten, stinky food can now be transformed into natural gas and fertilizer. Grocery stores and restaurants rejoice.
North Salt Lake • Imagine Utah as home to a voracious beast, able to consume 5 million gallons of food scraps — from rotten lettuce and rancid hamburger to spoiled milk and dirty frying oil.
What if this giant creature could grind and liquefy the waste, keeping it out of landfills and turning it into useful products such as natural gas and fertilizer?
This animal isn’t make-believe. It exists and is just waiting to be fed the stinkiest, sourest, most disgusting leftovers the state can scrape off its plates.
