The article reports on the 4.5 billion regeneration scheme proposed for Barnet, London, England which includes plans for a combined heat and power plant that would burn waste fed to it by an underground vacuum collection system. Municipal waste collected from access points throughout the development would be sucked at 70km/h via a network of buried pipes to a waste handling and recycling facility. Around 250,000 tonnes a year of unrecyclable solid waste would be treated to produce pellets, which would be converted into a gas.
