Pyrolyzer project

PUBLIC FORUM: Letters for Sunday, Sept. 8, 2013


While our consultants are preparing contracts for Loganport to sign, maybe it would be a good idea to visit successful pyrolyzers that are similar in fuel, volume, and electrical output to the one that Pyrolyzer LLC proposes to build for Logansport. The only problem is that no such facility exists.

And who is the pyrolyzation expert on these fact-finding trips for Logansport? Maybe Bradley Angel should go. At the “World’s Largest Incinerator Coming to Logansport?” event (available on, part 7), Bradley described touring a trash gasification/electricity facility in Japan, where he could see that the operator’s claims were untrue. At the end of the tour, the three plant managers apologized for making false claims. Someone who knows what to look for might be a valuable person to invite on a fact-finding trip.

Since January, Logansport citizens have been asking for proof that Pyrolyzer LLC can produce clean, cheap, reliable electricity. Even after these recent field trips, we still do not have the answer.

Should have seentrail user fee coming

I guess people should have thought of things like this beforehand. Times are tough right now and if you impose a user fee [on recreational trails], you may not have people using the trails because they can’t pay.

It’s kinda funny how [Rep. Bill] Friend is looking to start this user fee when there are far worse things to consider, like people losing jobs. I guess if you lose your job, you can go walk on a trail.

Wonder if the trails will be fenced off and gated with money and card machines at the entrance gates. Just hope they take food stamps.
