Watch Out for This New Green Energy Darling

How many times have you heard that the world is running out of food? How many times have you heard that the world is overpopulated?

Behold the opener to a full-page ad from Enbridge, an energy infrastructure company, that ran in last Thursday’s Wall Street Journal (emphasis mine)…

Nearly 10% of global [greenhouse gas] emissions come from a surprising source: wasted food. According to Divert Inc., the United States generates over 63 million tons of wasted food annually. In the state of Washington, more than 2.7 million tons of wasted food are produced yearly, with an estimated 47% of it still edible.

Let’s put this into perspective. The population of America is 330 million. That means the average American wastes 381 pounds of food per year… or more than 1 pound of food per day.

Enbridge’s angle here? The company is building a $1 billion facility in Longview, Washington, to convert this food waste into renewable natural gas (RNG).
