The trash that is used to fill the bins on city streets every day can be used to illuminate those very streets. And for this it does not need to be set on fire. For street lighting, you can use its decay products.
Not so long ago, we told you that garbage from street dumpsters can be reused. Excellent compost is obtained from its decomposition products. But, it turns out, you shouldn't be limited to humus alone. Trash can be an excellent source of energy for streetlights. This is the idea that designer Haneum Lee came up with.
Decomposition debris releases some methane. And methane is a combustible gas, which can be the source from which street lamps will work. The only question is how much debris is needed to keep these lights running smoothly.
Well, the humus that will form from the rest of the garbage can be used as compost. And here, too, the question arises. Even two. Firstly, is there enough time for the garbage to rot before the trash can be crammed to a decoupling? And secondly, won't the city, on the streets of which there will be such trash bins, stink like a huge dump?
