The City of Los Angeles Board of Public Works has voted unanimously to authorize the Bureau of Sanitation to commence contract negotiations with energy plant developer, Green Conversion Systems (GCS) to build and operate a state-of-the-art, commercial scale waste-to-energy facility. GCS, based in Rye, NY, is the sole licensee in the U.S. for a European developed technology called the Advanced Thermal Recycling system (ATR). It proposes to build a plant using this technology that will process nearly 1,100 tons per day of post-recycled municipal waste. GCS claims that it can convert 99% of the post-recycled waste into electricity and marketable by-products. The city hopes that the project will further its ‘RENEW LA’ initiative, which seeks to find a sustainable alternative to landfilling and move it closer to its ultimate goal of ‘zero waste.’
