Marion seeks to turn trash into electricity

Posted:
MARION (KWWL) -

Turning trash into electricity? The city of Marion has hired a consultant to see if that is possible. 

The project would require electricity from Plasma Power, which takes city garbage and converts it into a gas burned to create steam for commercial customers in downtown Cedar Rapids. A Marion owned utility would use the steam to spin turbines to generate electricity.
