In fact, the percentage of waste we burn for energy is actually slightly down in the past five years. What’s holding the U.S. back from this potentially sustainable solution? This stagnation is even more surprising when you consider that the past decade has seen a real energy shift in the U.S., ascoal usage fallsandrenewable energygrows....
