CleanTech Group has announced brings use news about a partnership with between International Power Group and ForeverGreen to build a hazardous waste to energy plant in LaFontaine, Indiana. While most waste-to-energy facilities are focusing on municipal trash, this new plant will target medical, chemical and industrial waste. Those materials are difficult and expensive to dispose of, making fuel production a more viable alternative. The plant will use a gasification process developed by ForeverGreen to turn the waste material into methanol, hydrogen and some electricity. The $227 million facility, which is expected to begin operation in 2010, will process 750 tons of waste per day.
UPDATE: a previous version of this post incorrectly stated that CleanTech is building this plant.
