The ABC has been doing this, issuing news teasers ahead of the FTA TV reports or programs for some time. Aug/Sept 2018 or earlier. A subtle way to extend the value and interest factor? It has done also for Australian Story, The 7:30 Report, etc.
It may be more meaningful to consider energy generation from renewable biomass as in a different class from non renewable waste resources.
The arguements that this is a good or acceptable outcome depend on the balance with replacement crops re-absorbing the CO2.
For none renewables, the benefits may be less clear. Combusting waste including hydrocarbons, EG plastics, may reduce their presence in the environment long term. Combustion rather than landfill creates many other issues with the residues and atmospheric pollution management. And all wastes treated this way add new CO2 to the environment!
Producing less waste and making better use of re-usable products may be a better option.
