“We can win this” was the message from Mike Ewall, founder and director of the Energy Justice Network, to about 60 residents of Muncy who attended a meeting organized by the group opposing the proposed waste to fuel project in the borough.
Ewall, an environmental lawyer, has been working with the “Stop the Muncy Incinerator” group in its effort to keep Delta Thermal Energy (DTE) Inc. from locating its plant in the former Andritz building.
Citing statistics that showed that no new trash incinerators have been built in recent years, Ewall went on to detail the problems that arise from the process. He encouraged the concerned citizens to call the plants incinerators even though the companies trying to locate them in municipalities like to call them waste to fuel or waste to energy.
“They hate the word incinerator, don’t let them not use it,” he said. “They are not waste to energy.”
