Ottawa Building North America’s First Gasification Facility | EcoGeek - I don't know how I missed this one, and I had to pick it up from EcoGeek, but this is good news. Ottawa apparently has unanimously voted to have Plasco setup a full fledged thrash processing plant. It's technology I don't understand, but after hearing Rod Bryden the ceo talk about it, I wanted to give him money. He is a very good salesguy no doubt, but I also think his group has got something going -it's not smoke and mirror. I'm very happy to see Ottawa buy local.
