Landfill or Skyfill

Excellent article by Keith Freegard. Well thought out and dispels the notion that waste to energy using plastic waste is efficient, but adds unecessary carbon emissions. Properly managed landfill storage prior to landfill mining to use suitable reprocessing technology when it develops sounds good, however one solution to deal with macro-scale amounts of mixed polyolefin waste is available now - fully proven and markets for environmental protection, rail, road, power, telecoms, landscaping and gardens waiting for the products.
