* Sierra Club Presents ReVenture Key Findings Report to Waste Management Advisory Board

Plant will turn Mecklenburg County into test lab

“But for the Charlotte region, the big question centers on emissions and exactly what they will be at the ReVenture plant. After all, Charlotte’s air quality is already the worst in the state; any additional emissions are cause for concern… Still, the Charlotte region won’t know the true volume of emissions at the plant until it’s up and running.”
