Plasma Arc - Municipal waste to Energy - New Text !!! !!!

Plasma Arc - Municipal waste to Energy - New Text !!! !!!

Plasma Arc - Municipal waste to Energy - New Text !!! !!!

(OP)
Nope..... I just will not leave this alone..... a lie is a lie is a lie....now we have a whole book on this topic

(See Closed thread730-211955: Plasma trash "Zapper" - Florida - St. Lucie County)

A new book was published on this topic in 2010

http://www.amazon.com/gp/search?index=books&linkCode=qs&;keywords=0470539674

To the surprise of no one, the (MBA) author "strongly endorses" the plasma arc idea......... just leave those messy thermal and materials details to the temporary engineers we will have to hire when we build this 500 TPD plasma-arc monster.

At least one book reviewer thinks that this text is just more trash:

Any comments....by anyone ??

Plasma zapping trash makes exactly as much sense as wet pulping it.

Plenty good money to be made
Supplying hucksters with tools of their trade.
Put down the books, pick up a (plasma) gun
We're gonna have a whole lotta fun!

Let's zap the trash,
Make some fast cash!
Who cares if Mom
Gets a bad rash?

I believe the "Zapper" functions as designed.  This, if you consider its true purpose is to separate gullible municipal governments from their tax dollars.
