Carthage TDP plant shut down temporarily

Well, the Carthage, Missouri plant that has the first functional plant to turn turkey garbage into oil has been shut down temporarily, because the plant was emitting smells so horrible that a town that was positioned next to a turkey farm couldn’t stand them! Since the smell of turkey farms is one of the foulest I’ve encountered, this must be truly awful. As a resident of a town with lots of local refineries, I know no one’s truly successful at wholly restraining bad odors in the oil business. I hope they’re able to fix this; TDP is one of the most promising technologies I’ve seen in a long time. Not only does it produce oil at a cost less than current global oil prices, but it does it from renewable resources that otherwise would be a major source of disease. Even if the plants still stink, I think it would be worth finding remote places to build them – would increase production costs if you have to ship the garbage in, but at least you’d still be getting oil from a renewable source.
