Hello BESTers,

   New York City is considering alternative disposal for it's 11,000 
tons per day of garbage, including anaerobic digestion and 
gasification.  Waste in urban areas, particularly New York, is 
notoriously problematic because of the high concentration of people and 
no place to put their waste.  With the world's eyes constantly on New 
York, sustainable waste disposal in the city could help set the 
standard for urban waste management.

Have a great weekend,
Ryan
