>The Tokai reactor will now become the first

>The reactor was the only one in Japan to use
>graphite as its moderator and carbon dioxide

>officials said made it cost twice as much to
>operate and maintain as other commercial
>reactors and which prompted its closure.
>
>The other 51 commercial nuclear reactors in
>Japan use water as a moderator and coolant.
>Nuclear reactors supply about one-third of the

Subject: Looking for Recycling Heroes

All,

The 'Green Scissors for Recycling' report is developing nicely and will be
ready for review soon. A joint project of the GrassRoots Recycling Network,
the Materials Efficiency Project, Taxpayers for Common Sense, and Friends of
the Earth, this will be the first Green Scissors study to look specifically at
how wasteful taxpayer subsidies for virgin material extraction and wasting
harms the recycling industry.

To make the report more accessible to the public, we are looking for stories
of real live people in the recycling business. Specifically, we want (1)
stories of recycling heroes in small or medium sized companies in the United
States (recyclers who have accomplished great things without federal
handouts), and (2) anecdotes of for-profit recyclers who have been
competitively disadvantaged by subsidies to their virgin material or wasting
competitors (and can be documented or estimated with numbers).

If you know of such people and stories, please email me -- including their
contact telephone if possible.

Thanks,
Bill Sheehan

P.S. The full report will be made available to the members of the greenyes
listserve at the time of its release.

Haya (and anyone else who cares to take a look)
Check out the factoids section on the ESA web site. It has a lot of facts
about paper, metals, plastics, etc. The URL is...
http://envirosystemsinc.com

You'll find some pretty good facts there. There are lots of facts about
paper. It is being added to all the time. All factoids have their source
listed also. Take care. Fritz Franke
