GREEN BAY.,Wis. (Sept. 30, 2011)—The Brown County, Wis., board is set to vote on contracting for a supply of waste to a pyrolysis facility being built in Green Bay.
Environmental advocates in Wisconsin aren't happy with the possibility of the plant being built there. The Sierra Club, Incinerator Free Brown County and the Waukesha County Environmental Action League sent comments to local elected officials expressing their concern about the new facility.
The groups said awarding $23 million in taxpayer dollars to the Oneida Seven Generation Corp.'s project wouldn't be wise because pyrolysis technology has never been a commercial success, whether it was in North America, Europe or South America
