Circular enerG Seeks to Build WTE Facility in Seneca County, N.Y.

The facility would be capable of burning up to 175 truckloads of solid waste per day, generating electricity and ash that could be reused and receiving trash via rail and truck.

Circular enerG, an "entrepreneurial" startup company based in Rochester, N.Y., has submitted a proposal to the town of Romulus to build a large waste-to-energy facility in Seneca County.

The facility, which would be constructed on a 48-acre parcel that was formerly part of the Seneca Army Depot, would be capable of burning up to 175 truckloads of solid waste per day, generating electricity and ash that could be reused and receiving trash via rail and truck.

A "entrepreneurial" Rochester startup company has proposed a massive trash-burning incinerator in Seneca County.

The incinerator, which would burn up to 175 truckloads of solid waste each day, would be built on a 48-acre parcel that once was part of the storied Seneca Army Depot.

The facility, which would loom 180 feet high over the landscape with a smokestack that reaches even higher, would generate electricity and create ash that the developers say could be re-used. The plant would be able to receive trash via rail as well as truck.
