Fuel Free and Water Anyone?

After months of controlled tests, Tyler Hamilton1 reports that in January Plasco’s Ottawa plant will begin to accept a regular stream of MSW (Municipal Solid Waste). Hamilton notes that to live up to promises, in terms of low-emission Syngas production at the PlascoEnergy Trail Road Facility, “all the bad stuff is removed using carbon filters and sent to a toxic landfill.”


He further informs:
“A tonne of waste will produce clean synthetic fuel gas, which substitutes for natural gas, 300 litres of potable water, 150 kilograms of clean, inert granular material to replace sand in the production of concrete, and small quantities of industrial salt and fertilizer grade sulphur. There are no air emissions released from the conversion process,” according to the company.

The company also claims “zero dioxins and furans and non-detectable levels of mercury” from the exhaust of the Jenbacher engines.* “The cost to convert waste … will generally be less than the cost to bury that waste in a landfill,” said Plasco chief Rod Bryden.
