No New Problems at Carthage Turkey-To-Fuel Plant

April 22, 2006 - Posted at 12:42 p.m. CST

CARTHAGE, Mo. (AP) _ Leaders of the southwest city of Carthage

say no new complaints have been reported since the re-opening last

month of a plant that turns turkey waste into fuel oil.

The Department of Natural Resources shut down Renewable

Environmental Resources temporarily in December because of

complaints about foul odors.

But the plant was allowed to reopen on a limited basis after

odor-control equipment was installed.

The agency will keep an eye on the plant until July to make sure

the smells don't return.

RES is owned by Changing World Technologies. The plant uses heat

and pressure to convert bones, feathers, fat and other leftovers

from the Butterball turkey plant into fuel oil.
