Harvest Power

The United States throws out $180 billion worth of food every year. Much of that ends up in landfills, creating the greenhouse gas methane. Harvest Power turns it into something else: power. It takes food waste, as well as leaves and yard trimmings, and, through anaerobic digestion and composting, transforms it into renewable energy and natural fertilizer.
