RE: [greenyes] Portola Valley System
One could make a very interesting day up here in MN taking a tour of "Failed
Europena Co-composting Technologies circa 1990". Quite a few very expensive,
equally closed facilities. In each of them they were shocked, SHOCKED, to
learn that plastic doesn't compost.....

I visited a facility operated by this company in Massachussets - I think it 
was Northhampton.  It was not horrible, but not terribly impressive either.
It 
was essentially the Bedminster Bioconversion technology.  It did not do any 
masceration, so most harmful things, like batteries, could be screened out.  
What they produced was of a basic topsoil quality, but not a real soil 
amendment.
