[GreenYes] Re: Biosolids. Sealed means independent testing !

Apologies that the GreenYes list has been hijacked by this conversation, but
I'll just share one last thought which is that plasma is clearly
incineration when the resulting gases are incinerated. This is why the
European Union considers plasma, gasification and pyrolysis to be
incinerators -- combustion of waste, even if it's treated first, is
The European Union Parliament's Directive on Incineration of Waste:
"'[I]ncineration plant' means any stationary or mobile technical unit and
equipment dedicated to the thermal treatment of wastes with or without
recovery of the combustion heat generated. This includes the incineration by
oxidation of waste as well as other thermal treatment processes such as
pyrolysis, gasification or plasma processes in so far as the substances
resulting from the treatment are subsequently incinerated."

Not to mention the question of spending over $400 million to destroy
valuable resources that could be recycled and composted. I suggest we put
our money and efforts into stopping the twin problems of resource depletion
and waste creation, rather than subsidizing wasting by finding new ways to
juggle mixed discards.
I'm happy to continue this discussion with anyone off list to not overwhelm
the entire email list.

Sealed means independent testing with the seal of the testing lab embossed
on the pages like a notary.

I will send you a copy off net of sampled sealed test info and the details
onmachine I observed which was greatly improved since 2004.

The energy balance varies depending on what is put in as is demonstrated in
the Westinghouse system. Plama reduic of Coal yield is much better than
sewer sludge.

Plasma loves all plastics especially auto fluff.

Fla has lots of waste streams that are more or less pure high hydrocarbon
containing feedstock types this allows even greater efficiency and thruput.

By the way anyone that says Plasma is incineration is clueless on the
process. NO FLAME inert gas no oxygen involved. And really really clean. EPA
emissions sheet on Medical Waste will be sent to you off net.

AS far as cost is concerned the deal that the old plasma company made to my
county was FREE system contracted waste stream and agreed on price of
electrical power which was better than our existing Covanta contract. Lake
Co has one of three legacy waste to enegy plants in Fla. Uses Natural Gas
to keep the temps consistent and lots of water to control emissions. We also
have a class Blandfill and ash to contend with. And Lake CO also recycles
glass, plastic, cardboard and metals cans and white goods.
