The former executive director of Rhode Island’s Economic Development Corporation wants to build a biomass to renewable energy plant along Providence’s waterfront on Allens Avenue, but he said the city needs to commit to freezing commercial tax rates to make the project happen.
Interesting – so natures TDP in essence. TDP is Thermal Depolymerization. Can extract oil from just about anything including plastics, garbage, etc. Outputs are a clean oil that can be burned, and carbon which can be stored.
I think it’d be cool to have it here in Providence.
Incineration by any name is still a bad polluter and a waste of resources. Anything that is burnable can be recycled or composted for greater benefit.
Yes, anything burnable can be recycled, reused and/or composted, but the question is: is there a market for it? If there isn’t a market for it, it ends up being warehoused or thrown away.
If there is no market it is a market failure so lets create one instead of wsting resources. Planet Earth is too small to be able to afford the waste
