"Incinerator That Turns Waste To Energy Is Shutting Down"

"DETROIT — A company can no longer burn trash at a Detroit incinerator as part of an agreement with the state.

Detroit Renewable Power has entered into an agreement to resolve violations of air quality and waste management rules, according to the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy.

Trash burned at the incinerator created electricity and steam used by homes and buildings in and around downtown.

Three boilers at the facility are required to permanently shut down, and the company also must pay a $200,000 penalty for air quality violations."

The Associated Press had the story February 6, 2021.
