An innovative approach to incineration

English

The article "Businessman plans to burn 'body parts and organs' to create energy' by Victoria Ward has for objective to show a new way of creating energy by using a different process than incinerators.

The main cause of the issue is to find a cleaner way of combustion for the environment when producing energy. The author points out that it is a better technology, with better quality fuel than the large incineration companies.

Summary

The article I chose is about the will of Saudi Arabia, under Prince Mohammed bin Salman, to start investing money in solar energy to diversify economy and become a world power in clean energy. Even if Saudi Arabia is the world biggest exporter, they see potential in clean energy. The new solar farms soon in construction will create hundreds of jobs and will be able to provide electricity to around 40 000 homes. The country plans to invest 7 billion dollars in those farms by the end of the year.
