This topic is important because of the growing need for us to produce and supply low cost energy for public consumption. Demand has increased exponentially, and in order to reduce dependence on foreign oil, coal, and natural gas we need to utilize waste to its full potential. Three major waste to energy plant expansions are happening now at Olmstead WTE, Minnesota and at Lee and Hillsborough Counties, in Florida. New “Greenfield” construction is planned at Harford, Carroll, and Fredrick Counties, in Maryland.
