The Logansport Municipal Utilities plant (this might be the Pyrolyzer group) gets paid for accepting the garbage and also sells any excess electricity. The idea is fantastic and I give them a 10 for the idea, the hard part is going to get the plants operational and all the logistics of the garbage/refuse smooth flow into the Pyrolyzer plant by rail and truck.
If everything goes well, then Ted could run for governor, and Logansport will be a word heard ‘round the world. If it doesn’t work, Ted might be hunting for a job.
Thanks for clearing way for emissions controls
I have recently moved back home to Logansport from Thousand Oaks, Calif., and am learning about the waste-to-energy/incinerator project. It seems like the name of the project depends on who is doing the talking.
The Pharos Tribune’s Aug. 7 story about local emissions limits was very interesting.
Good for the county commissioners for considering making any new incinerator be just as clean as a natural gas plant. This is a conservative, reasonable approach, and passing these requirements could diffuse a lot of controversy surrounding the Pyrolyzer proposal. Requiring Pyrolyzer to be as “clean” as a natural gas plant should be no problem, provided that it is actually as clean as the mayor and his consultants claim.
I hope the commissioners go forward with this plan.
