Bulgarian scientist, Yevgeni Minov, has invented a lightweight incinerator that turns common garbage into useable gas. It uses an efficient, low-energy-cost process called pyrolysis, which thermo-chemically burns organic material at high temperatures. In turn, the gases that it emits are suitable for household heating and electricity production.
Minov believes his invention could solve waste processing issues, decrease oil and gas consumption, and help ease reliance on non-renewable energy resources. He and his team have filed for patents and hope their incinerator enters the open market within the year.
