Everybody, frankly, should thank NAB for leading the charge against a waste-burner at Rock Tenn. After the scheme was cooked up, the price of natural gas dropped. Aside from the air pollution that would have resulted, the project would have hung like a millstone around the neck of Rock Tenn and made the plant less financially viable.
Just a note to thank everyone who put in many volunteer hours to protect this St. Paul neighborhood from another garbage burner. A plan for Anaerobic Digestion was adopted as a cleaner alternative than incineration, but as gas prices dropped, Rock-Tenn found it economical to utilize clean natural gas as an energy source. Working together, we helped protect the air for all of our families — not just in the Rock-Tenn neighborhood, but across our city, state & national regions.
