Proposed plant would turn trash to fuel
Minnesota company is looking to Empire Township as the location for a plant that will turn garbage to gold.
On Tuesday night Rational Energies presented a plan for a 200,000-square-foot plant that could start turning trash and other waste material into high-quality diesel fuel as early as 2012.
"This is not biodiesel. This would be considered No. 1 diesel fuel under all specifications," said Ed Driscoll chief executive officer of the approximately 18-month-old company.
