    issues include the large parasitic costs and the other uses of the waste streams -- We should be diverting as much as possible before we need to be considering this. Interestingly, as an indication of the problems that we can create w/paths like this, in some communities, efforts to divert food waste from the trash system into composting are blocked because of the necessity to maintain contracting municipal solid waste streams into incinerators. There has been enough success on other recycling that was being burned that composting projects are being blocked. (Interesting WashPost article on composting nationwide.)

    PS:  I've had, although it is a few years since the last time, the chance to have 'inside briefs' on plasma-torch/such systems. I find them 'energy cool', as well, but am uncertain how to place them against other options.
