BioHiTech News 6 – 16 – 20

A new solid waste facility proposed by the international firm BioHiTech is planning to move ahead in the City of Renssealer, despite a moratorium in the county. The project received a negative declaration from the lead agency, the City of Rensselaer, in 2019. The negative declaration allows the BioHiTech project to go forward without a comprehensive State Environmental Quality Review. The project is located directly on the Hudson River on top of an existing hazardous waste landfill from the former BASF facility.Throughout this interview you will hear references to the “cap” which means the cap on the hazardous waste. The project would also increase truck traffic by more than fifty trucks per day on route 20. In this interview you will hear representatives of BioHiTech, including:

Dennis Soriano – Birector of Business Development at Biohitech

Emily Dyson – Director of Science Research and Development; overall operating manager for the West Virginia BioHiTech facility.

John Montagne of Greenman Peterson Engineering, the consulting engineers hired by Rensselaer Planning Board to do technical review of the project

Tom West – BioHiTech attorney
