[GreenYes] Re: with $400 million, I think we could get darn close to ZW!


I hope so too.

On top of that, doesn¹t this mean that they will need a lot of waste for a
long time?

I just really hope St. Lucie County has thoroughly checked out this
company's credibility; the payback period; assumptions behind the pro forma;
financing sources; etc. There is a long history in the waste field of con
artists selling the latest "black box" super-duper technology ("we'll turn
your garbage in to gold")- especially outside of big cities - and getting
the financing and then vanishing in the night...
