Re: Well = whatever next?

An interesting article.  I've driven past this plant on a number of occasions and there is most definitely a whiff in the air.  Locals say they get used to it but I don't think I would want to live near it.  Still it looks a good scheme for generating power.

British Airways has struck a deal to build the first plant in Europe to produce jet fuel from waste matter.
Some 500,000 tonnes of waste will be used by the UK facility each year to produce 16 million gallons of fuel.
Construction of the plant in east London will start within two years. It is set to produce fuel from 2014, creating up to 1,200 jobs.
BA said the plant would produce twice the amount of fuel needed to power all its flights from London City Airport.
