The owner of a Michigan power plant is seeking permission to burn a different type of fuel that the state considers renewable, though a local community group has raised concerns about the gases produced by the plant. Convergen Energy is seeking a long-term permit to use engineered fuel pellets at the Warden Power Plant in L'Anse. The pellets are made of paper and plastic waste that would otherwise be deposited in a landfill, said Ted Hansen, Convergen's CEO. A permit from the Department of Environmental Quality has allowed the fuel pellets to be test-burned at the plant for the past year.
