One prototype- Industrial designer Haneum Lee has come up with a concept lighting system that not only reduces the energy demands but also composts food waste. The lamppost<http://www.ecofriend.org/entry/eco-gadgets-concept-streetlamp-gets-powered-by-trash/> composts trash and uses the methane which is released as a byproduct to fuel the lights. The concept lamp allows users to throw their organic waste into a wastebasket, which further recycles it for the desired energy.
