Are Waste-to-Energy facilities safe for the environment?
YES! According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), waste-to-energy facilities generate electricity with "less environmental impact than almost any other source of electricity."
YES! EPA states that "modern waste-to-energy facilities meet or exceed EPA's Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards."
Is waste-to-energy a renewable energy source?
YES! Waste-to-energy is renewable because of its fuel source - MSW is sustainable.
US EPA states that "waste-to-energy is clean, reliable, renewable source of energy."
Do waste-to-energy facilities compete with recycling?
NO! Research data shows that communities with waste-to-energy facilities have an average recycling rate higher than the national average.

The first of its size Pyrolysis/Gasification waste-to-energy power plant is a
product of the collaboration
and long lasting business relationship between Alliance Construction & Design
and Oneida Seven Generations.
Our common goal and objective is to establish a state-of-the-art energy recovery facility which will serve as a joint development between the tribe, country and
local communities. Our common effort will demonstrate the benefits of using
waste as a fuel in an environmentally friendly manner. The plant disposes of
waste by converting it to energy, rather than dumping or spreading it on landfills.
The Pyrolysis based waste-to-energy plant is structured to produce renewable electricity that will otherwise be produced in an electric utility power plant burning fossil fuel.
Being a member of the Wisconsin Green Building Alliance, Alliance Construction
& Design is proud to be the first company in the country to design and build a
fully enclosed Gasification system converting over 150 tons of waste per day
into 5MW of electricity per hour. The amount of energy produced by this
system can be compared to the energy produced by 19 (750kW) wind turbines.
The plant will function as a demonstration project and focal point for working with other tribes and municipalities to convert additional waste streams that would otherwise be landfilled. Such utilization of waste streams is extremely important for reducing our country’s dependence on foreign oil and fossil fuels.
The project has obtained a substantial financial support through the state of Wisconsin and has the opportunity to receive further funding through the
department of energy.

Oneida Energy has a new location!
The renewable energy facility will be located at 1230 Hurlbut Street in Green Bay.
Construction is expected to begin immediately after all environmental permits
from the Department of Energy (DOE), Wisconsin Department of Natural
Resources (WDNR) and the US Environmental Protection agency (EPA) are in place.
