Fried trash – powers your TV?

Plasma torch garbage processing produces usable gas, electricity

Saw this one over at CrunchGear – it sounds neat. Yet I wonder what the net return will be on this. Are fuel costs factored in to ship trash there once the immediate local garbage dump is exhausted? Judging by the scale implied, the plant isn’t going to move from dump to dump, so in the long run trash will have to go there. While the number of trash we produce will easily fuel this concept – can we get it their cheap enough to make it a more viable solution?
