Panel to discuss trash options

April 05, 1994

WESTMINSTER -- A committee that has been studying whether Carroll County should build a trash-burning incinerator is ready to start building a consensus for a recommendation to the county commissioners.

Committee members agreed yesterday to discuss recommendations at their April 21 meeting. The consensus agreement will form the basis for a report and recommendation that the committee hopes to send the commissioners in June.

The committee also heard a presentation yesterday on fluid bed combustion, a process of sorting refuse to remove recyclable materials, garbage and potential air pollution generators, then burning the rest for industrial use. The process has much lower pollutant emissions than conventional incineration, said Steve Vayda, president of Clean Power International, an energy consulting company.
