Florida Keys Waste Headed Toward ‘Gasification’Florida Keys Waste Headed Toward ‘Gasification’
February 23, 2015
Yard waste from Monroe County will head west to a Lake Okeechobee town while efforts to build a "gasification" plant in South Miami-Dade continue.
Monroe County commissioners voted last week to sign a 30-month interim agreement with Energy 3, a Maryland firm, to haul yard waste out of the county to Moore Haven.
Energy 3 is pursuing efforts to build an innovative gasification plant in South Miami-Dade to convert Florida Keys yard waste into a synthetic fuel used by power plants. The plant will not be operational for more than 2 1/2 years.
