A smorgasbord of household trash and a cocktail of enzymes are fed into long steel cylinders. The enzymes break down organic matter into a soupy bioliquid; microbes then feed on this to produce methane, which can be burned to generate power. Remaining solids are recycled or taken to an incinerator to generate more power.
