Thompson, Robert W.
This project explores economical, governmental and technological aspects of Changing World Technologies, Inc.'s thermal depolymerization process. It concludes that although this technology works, it depends heavily on government subsidies. Additionally, the potential amount of wastes to be converted will not significantly impact the U.S. energy economy. Finally, the feedstocks used for this process would negatively impact the rendering industry. We hope that this report encourages the federal government to require independent evaluations before giving subsidies to new alternative energy processes.
