[greenyes] Re: Changing World Technologies


CWT is real, and their project at the Butterball Turkey plant in Carthage, MO
has been running for many months now. It was featured in an issue of one of
the recycling trade rags last year. Basically, it is a high temperature, high
pressure depolymerization process, akin to crude oil refining. Visit
http://www.changingworldtech.com/ for more info.

A Google search will bring up plenty of opinions on the matter, including one
from mindfully.org that dismisses the process as incineration in disguise.
They fail to provide any supporting documentation that the use of
turkey-derived oils will release anywhere near the toxins suspected to be released during
the incineration of poultry litter.

Biodiesel from turkey fat can be a legitimate ingredient in creating a modern
society that more closely resembles something sustainable. Dismissing all
forms of energy recovery from waste without a more careful examination of each
case does not serve the environmental cause well.
