Gobbling up waste to produce fuel oil
Changing World Technologies (CWT), a privately held
company based in West Hempstead, N.Y., is perfecting a recipe for transforming the leftovers from Butterball
turkeys into commercial-grade fuel oil. The company is collaborating with food giant ConAgra to open its first commercial waste-to-energy plant in Carthage, MO, which is scheduled to go on-line by the end of the year. The Carthage plant will be the first in the world to use waste to produce fuel oils that are practically identical to natural hydrocarbons.
