The matrix waste will be collected every few hours and will be brought to the Ecovillage to showcase the amount of waste that could be used as fuel instead of being disposed of in landfills. After the show, all waste will be baled and picked up by Convergen Energy to be made into fuel pellets. Convergen Energy’s pellets are a substitute for coal but with a lower carbon and overall emissions’ footprint than fossil fuels.
