Learning about EROEI from Azimuth has me thinking about whether collecting glass, plastics, aluminium and paper at street collection points makes sense in energy terms? I doubt it, but don't have any convincing reason to say that. I was brought up to believe that aluminium production was energy intensive and had to be sited near hydro-electric power stations. Now you site data centres near cheap electricity!
