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

One "byproduct" is energy... what is another? Ash maybe? What can be done with this wonderful "byproduct"? How will it be used/disposed of? (Not how -can- it, but how -will- it? Show me examples of who has used it...) Won't it be awefully toxic. Representatives of a similar company trying to build on in a community many years ago couldn't answer these questions for me then...

I hope so too.

On top of that, doesnât 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...

St. Lucie County Commissioners recently authorized a plan to contract with Atlanta based Geoplasma LLC to build a plasma arc gasification plant that is expected to gasify at least 3,000 tons of waste per day. Plasma arcs produce a type of artificial lightning that heats anything in its path upwards of 7,000 degrees C. A byproduct of the process is combustible gas which, in this case, will be used to generate enough electricity to power 37,000 to 48,000 homes. The plant will cost $400 million and take two years to build.
