The article reports on the business operation of Turin, Italy-based Amiat. The company collects and manages waste from the northern city of Turin and the surrounding area. The waste is a source of renewable energy that cuts the local-authority-owned company's carbon dioxide emissions and gives it a useful income stream. In 2008, 60 percent of the area's waste goes to landfill and the site is very close to the town. The company has been capturing the gas produced as the waste rots since 1985.
