Energy from waste facility moving forward

The message from the Southern Alberta Energy from Waste Alliance is simple: a facility is moving forward.
MD of Willow Creek council was updated June 13 on the proposed facility that would burn garbage and generate electricity.
Coun. Earl Hemmaway represents council on the alliance and said progress is being made.
The organization is waiting to become an official association. Once that occurs a business plan will be written.
The alliance has already written a strategic plan and has an engineer preparing a request for a willing host for the facility, a request for interest for industry, and a request for interest for energy from waste technology providers.
Membership in the alliance has also grown from 54 municipalities to between 72 and 73.
“We have practically all of southern Alberta except the cities of Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, and Calgary,” Hemmaway said. “It is moving forward.”
Hemmaway added it took 13 years for the facility in Durham, Ont. to be completed.
