[GreenYes] Re: 3 new messages in 3 topics - digest



HI All,

I have been sent a plan for Catalina Island, CA which looks very
comprehensive in its attempt to create a sustainable energy system.
Yet they are relying on a wte (pyrolysis) system for waste. I believe
they will feed rdf from a dirty mrf into a dedicated unit.
They plan to use the IES technology which is being built in
Riverside, CA.

If anyone has detailed cost information and/or a copy of the actual
solid waste management plan, I would appreciate a chance to review.

Thanks for your help.
