That great big mountain of a dump hovering over Cayman International School is potentially a great national treasure. Unless it is capped and allowed to continuously leach into the water and ground and emit methane into the atmosphere that is.
By placing a plasma gasification plant in proximity to the existing dump, we can deal with today’s and tomorrow’s waste stream, AND we can mine garbage out of the hill from the past.
By processing this material into syngas and then further, into gas (and a tiny bit of vitrified, inert material, suitable for aggregate) we can then take that gas and use it for electrical generation.
The aggregate can be used in roads, etc.
In the simplest of terms, there is technology available and used all over the world today that turns unsorted garbage, of all kinds, into salvaged metals, electricity and aggregate.
This technology does not produce harmful particulate emissions.
I am not making this up.
PLEASE CAYMANIANS – Check this out for yourself. Go online and Google plasma gasification. Then insist that every candidate you speak to address the dump and their view on this process. We deserve this technology. And our children’s, children’s, children do too.
