Jan 8 - Indiana Mulls Incineration as Recycling

Recyclers are up in arms over a bill in Indiana that directs the state environmental quality service council to conduct research and make findings and recommendations regarding whether incineration should be considered recycling.

For several years now California has been dealing with similar issues. Here the controversy has centered around a mix of waste to energy technologies dubiously referred to as "conversion technologies. "

An advocacy group, defendrecycling.org has formed to lobby against the WTE effort.
