Incinerating Florida!!

Or at least their waste. If you follow the eco-news much at all, you probably heard of this already, but they’re going to make an incineration plant in southern Florida where they can vaporize 3000 tons of trash every day. That’s a lot of waste going away. And apparently the only biproducts are:

1. Synthetic gas – used to generate 120 Megawatts a day
2. Slag for road construction
3. Steam – used for another nearby factory

And that’s it. It will cost $425 million. Critics say that other similar projects have failed to meet expectations for such amazing sustainability. Perhaps that’s true. But it’s certainly an innovative project. Also see Wired News‘ article about it.
