[GreenYes] plasma

The thing about plasma or incineration or WTE is that once you have
bought the plant, you need to feed it with materials that might be
recyclable, reusable, compostable or preventable and pay off the
considerable debt service. This discourages development of new
technologies, legislation, practices, research etc into the
aforementioned four preferable methods. The only way I have heard to
have both is to have small scale WTE with all the best controls
(Enercon / Vicon proposed this once) on flatbed trailers and back
them out one at a time as your upper end hierarchy methods gain in
use. Then you minimize landfilling (or in the case of NYC, transfer,
export and landfilling) while not adversely impacting the quest for
zero waste. Plant sizing is critical in this.
