A recycling firm with an option to purchase a decommissioned waste-to-energy plant in New Hampshire is proposing a pilot business turning trash into electricity using a gasification process.

The Eagle Times reports D.B. Kazee, one of the four investors involved in the purchase of the Claremont Wheelabrator plant, on Wednesday outlined a five-year pilot recycling business.

Recycling Technologies Solutions of Lexington, Kentucky, placed a $575,000 winning bid on the former waste-to-energy incinerator earlier this year.

Kazee says investors are involved in business in several states recycling waste and repairing distressed equipment from decommissioned plants.

He says the Claremont facility would be run in a similar fashion, receiving and disposing waste through gasification. That process involves a set of reactions that uses limited oxygen to convert materials into synthetic gas.
