"We have additional air
that other incinerators don't have. That means less smoke. We're also the
only thing on the market that bottom burns," said Massey.
Bottom burning means that the grease produced from animal carcasses as they burn won't have to be removed as waste. The grease falls into the fire giving it more fuel and allowing it to burn hotter.
"The grease from the chickens becomes fire -- it becomes energy. We're turning that grease into fuel," said Massey. Representatives from the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) were on hand as an independent company performed the emissions standards tests. While they refused to comment on the incinerator's performance during the test, they are reviewing their findings and preparing a report that will determine if the incinerator can be used within Alabama.
Massey seemed pleased with the testing and was confident the incinerator would pass with flying colors.
"It's just more cost efficient," said Massey. "It's EPA friendly."
