$227M Plant Will Convert Hazardous Waste to Energy

ForeverGreen Enterprises and cialis low price International Power Group have partnered up to launch a venture to build a power plant in Indiana that will convert hazardous waste into energy. 750 tons a day of industrial, chemical and medical garbage will be converted to buy levitra discount methanol and hydrogen, plus a little electricity – but we don’t know how much of an output the plant will have.

This is an effort to find a new niche away from cellulosic and municipal waste conversion, which has seen a flood of interest the last couple years. ForeverGreen feels that all this other junk has potential, and no one else is really going after it...yet.

Construction is set to start at the very beginning of 2009, and in about 22 months, the plant will hopefully start turning hazardous materials into useable substances using a combination of International Power’s waste-heat-to-energy process and ForeverGreen’s gasification process. The byproducts will include scrap steel and silicates – among other things?

Details are still vague while the companies work to find financing to cover the full project, but we’ll follow this one as construction time approaches.

It's pretty amazing that there's literally going to be a plant created just for processing hazardous waste. I'm assuming that all hazardous waste just gets put into landfills otherwise? I think that it's a huge step for the movement every time a company decides to invest in a green venture, because money has so much power in this country. Hopefully there is more like this to come.

Good News!

I recently read of a power plant in... er, Hawaii, I seem to recall, that is going to use organic garbage to generate power. That sounded really cool.

This sounds great too. This is the where can i buy propecia kind of levitra generic brand power generation you dream about - 'free' power because it's derived from waste. Could there be anything greener than that? Let's hope the project goes ahead and proves a success.

Of course, I doubt there'll be enough such waste globally to make a significant impact on our power needs should this project be copied, but every little helps (and I might be wrong anyway!).

Yes, good news.

I'm sorry, but this is not green or clean people.
Gassification - READ: incineration. Same goes with plasma arc technology and every other euphemism incinerators can come up with. The same goes to trash-to-ethanol, where you heat up garbage to turn into a fuel that you will then burn in a car. Where do the hazardous chemicals and waste go?

So, you are going to burn hazardous waste and get a relatively small amount of electricity. There are much better ways to deal with hazardous waste including redesigning production to just try! buy cialis 50 mg not create it in the first place.

And a plant in Hawaii that will burn organic garbage for power? Um, why not compost it? And you have to consider what happens when their organic feedstock supply runs short. To keep these things running (profitably, and we know that pretty much the main concern of corporations) they need a constant supply to burn. That's where you get more MSW, construction wood, tires, etc thrown in. Look at their air permits and you'll find things that aren't in their press releases.

We could find much much better uses for this $227mil and all the other financing on "clean coal", nuclear, ethanol, biomass, and any false or 'transition' solutions.
