Overview:

  • The facility will convert waste into clean, renewable electricity.

  • Over a 1 year period, the facility is projected to produce 1.2-1.3 MW of clean energy. This is the amount of power used annually by more than 1,000 homes.

  • The waste will be converted to energy by a heating process called “pyrolysis”. Waste will not be burned or incinerated – rather, it is evaporated.

  • MedRecycler will receive no more than four full truckloads of waste daily, or eight trucks in total.

  • No waste will ever be stored on-site. It will only be delivered based on a pre-determined, carefully planned schedule determined by the capacity of the facility systems. The waste will be delivered in sealed containers.

  • Emissions from the facility will be less than the equivalent of four cars travelling 11,500 miles per year at 55 miles per hour.

  • There will be no waste-water discharged into the local waste-water system as a result of facility operations.
