The public-private partnership will build a facility to convert municipal solid waste (MSW) into refuse-derived fuel (RDF), according to a news release. In the second phase the partnership will construct a full-scale gasification plant.
The first phase will begin six to eight months after ground breaking, and the second phase will come 12-18 months after ground breaking.
When the facility starts up the county estimates it will generate profits of up to $200,000 through the supply of RDF. It should employ 40 to 70 people.
