Option 2 — Waste-To-Energy (WTE) Incineration

WTE is an environmentally friendly method of generating energy using penta and/or creosote-treated wooden poles (or untreated wood) as a biomass fuel source. The high temperature incineration process converts the old wood waste into a new energy source, which can be repurposed as electricity. Currently, roughly 2% of the electric energy used in the US is derived from wood waste disposed of in this manner.
