1 Medical waste shipped to Covanta Marion waste-to-energy facility.
2 Medical waste included aborted fetuses . Technically a still born full term could be refereed to as Medical waste.
3 Medical waste is added to trash and burned for electricity .
It doesn't matter who reported it even if there was an an agenda facts are facts.
How about a TV station that make it more legitimate facts didn't change .
And by the sounds of it Marion County Board of Commissioners weren't to happy with it nor are some residents.
If you want to ridicule people for their preferences and beliefs be prepared for being ridiculed. I totally disagree with fetuses being tossed in trash to be reclaimed for power. Standard medical waste is fine. The harvesting power just isn't right.
If you really want to do something useful to them bury them. Idealistically we should respect the circle of life we eat plants or creatures who eat plants our waste fertilizers the plants when we die bury again feeding plants. We are breaking the cycle by keep taking and not returning . our waste gets treated chemicals mixed in and buried where plants never get the use and when we die same thing even cremated they keep you on a shelf.
How long can we take away without replenishing the soil. Be fore you SCREAM BIO WASTE BIO HAZARD this cycle was here long before the idea of embalming many family plots had trees planted nearby a grave. Some planted fruit trees near graves and out houses.
quit trying to push that energy is "Harvested", please read through this thread in whole and really dig into some of the info myself and others have brought to the table.
stop accepting boxed medical waste from British Columbia to generate electricity after learning it includes tissue from aborted fetuses.
Energy-from-Waste Facility Covanta Marion, Inc. Brooks, Oregon The Marion County Energy-from-Waste facility began commercial operation in March 1987, serving the solid waste management needs of the 300,000 people of Marion County, Oregon. The facility operates as Covanta Marion and processes 550 tons per day of municipal solid waste (MSW), which generates up to 13.1 megawatts of renewable energy sold to Portland General Electric
Energy-from-Waste (EfW or waste-to-energy) facilities offer a safe, technologically advanced means of waste disposal while also generating clean, renewable energy, reducing greenhouse gas
energy-from-waste facilities "are economically sound investments that provide multiple financial and environmental benefits to the communities that utilize them."
To me ( to generate electricity ) means make electricity from a fuel when the generated electricity is utilized is is considered harvested.
Cremation is the use of high-temperature burning, vaporization, and oxidation to reduce dead animal or human bodies to basic chemical compounds, such as gases and mineral fragments retaining the appearance of dry bone
It takes a lot of energy to get a furnace up to the temperature required for "cremation", which is between 1400 and 1800FA
While plastic does usually burn in an open-air fire, the dioxins remain after combustion and either float off into the atmosphere
Modern municipal incinerator designs include a high-temperature zone, where the flue gas is ensured to sustain a temperature above 850 °C (1,560 °F) for at least 2 seconds before it is cooled down
The waste is transferred to a combustion chamber where self-sustaining combustion is maintained at extremely high temperatures
I don't know who's going to perform all those pious funerals and memorial services for all those unwanted fetuses! In the meantime
