Racks Up 170 Violations:That's interesting, except the neighbor......
“United Ethanol cares about their neighbors," Dori Lichty, plant spokeswoman, wrote in an e-mail to The Janesville Gazette. "That's why we are installing a new $2 million, multi-chamber RTO (regenerative thermal oxidizer). That's why we have all the new RTO pieces on site so we can begin construction as soon as the DNR permit is approved."
JG Excerpt:Certainly…..at this point…..we wouldn’t want to break any laws now would we……why…..….that would be violation………..number 171.
Dorn doesn't believe the plant's statements. He believes the plant wants to install the new equipment to increase its production capacity, he said.
In fact, the new equipment will increase the plant's capacity, but not beyond its allowable limit, Lichty said.
