Work has already begun to convert the old American Phoenix building on Vance Tank Road into a plant that will turn trash into ethanol, said Ted Cox, the Bristol, Va., businessman behind the $157 million project.

...“The process would take municipal waste – solid waste and other organic products including municipal sludge – and make them into usable products without having to be put in a landfill,” Cox said.

...Cox said the building’s availability will greatly cut the time it takes to get the business, Reclaimed Resources Inc., into operation, which he now estimates at about 16 months. He said the plant will open in early 2011 and employ more than 100 people at an average wage of $42,000 a year plus benefits.

Trash into ethanol? Cool!!!!

Thinning out our gasoline with that kind of alcohol almost makes sense. As opposed to growing corn and burning coal to convert it into ethanol. Maybe people are finally getting the message.

Ethanol from trash and weeds....Good

Ethanol from fertilized fields of corn in the midwest....Stupid
