(same as coal) EcoTac will reduce emissions of sulfur, carbon dioxide, mercury and many other pollutants. EcoTac is manufactured in a physical shape and size that ships and stores similar to coal. EcoTac requires no special storage facilities, nor any fuel handling retrofits, and it does not leach EcoTac Fuel Briquettes from first facility already committed via letters of intent. Using today’s most advanced technologies that continuously separate recyclable materials out of incoming MSW, that otherwise would be disposed of at landfills & WTE plants. We anticipate being able to recycle 90% to 95% of all incoming waste materials. These materials will be either marketed to end use manufacturers, or used in the production of EcoTac. This project will be a model that will be used to show how private industry can exceed state policy on recycling (e.g. Solid Waste Master Plan). Planned roof mounted solar panels ◦ Project plans to use renewable energy to power the plant. ◦ 92,000 square foot building will accommodate 80,000 square feet of solar panels. ◦ Can generate over 1,000,000 kwh/year in solar energy. ◦ Any remaining power can be virtual net metered to other facilities. We finalized our permitting with the Town of Rochester on June 25th, 2013 MEPA approval received August 23rd, 2013 from the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs. We are just a few weeks from receiving the final modification of our existing permit for the Rochester facility.

Many communities signed with Semass before the plant was built!! Do you want to pay MORE money to have your trash burned – OR – would you like to pay LESS money and have your trash recycled at a solar powered environmentally friendly facility?
