Just last year Green Power Inc. faced problems when the company was shut down by Washington state’s Ecology Department under accusations that firm had not provided adequate compliance with the environmental air quality regulations. However this matter was resolved this past September when the EPA backed Green Power and reversed Washington state’s Ecology Department’s claim.
Not to be hindered by the threatened shut-down, a number of other countries have already expressed an interest in building their own Green Power Inc. plants, including Vietnam, Spain, France, Yugoslavia, and South America, which is already targeting a large scale installation anticipated to launch April 2011. But as a U.S. based company, you must be wondering about domestic undertakings – is the U.S. to receive any waste-to-energy plants? According to Spitzauer, he hasn’t been entertaining U.S. contracts in the last year or so, despite plenty of interest on his part. However, he hopes this will change in the near future and that the plants will bear the slogan “Made in the U.S.A.”
