WHEELABRATOR'S BROWARD COUNTY, FLA. TRASH-TO-ENERGY PLANTS DEDICATED

WHEELABRATOR'S BROWARD COUNTY, FLA. TRASH-TO-ENERGY PLANTS DEDICATED
 FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The United States' two newest and most advanced trash-to-energy projects are being dedicated in ceremonies today at Wheelabrator Environmental Systems' South Broward site, 4400 South State Highway 7 in Ft. Lauderdale. The event will begin at 10:30 a.m.
 Each of the trash-to-energy facilities is designed to convert 2,250 tons per day of municipal solid waste into 70 megawatts of electric generating capacity. The Wheelabrator North Broward project is located in Pompano Beach.
 Both plants have begun receiving trash from county haulers and producing power for Florida Power & Light. The South Broward facility, which is in full commercial operations, passed by wide margins all of its required state and federal environmental tests last month.
 Today's ceremonies will include remarks by Reid Detchon, principal deputy and assistant secretary for Conservation and Renewables at the U.S. Department of Energy, and Richard S. Weinstein, chairman of The Nature Conservancy. Other speakers include members of the Broward County Commission, Tom Henderson of the Broward County Resource Recovery Office, James Weldon of Broward Building Trades Council and senior Wheelabrator executives.
 Following the ceremonies, science students from one of Wheelabrator's local "Partners in Excellence" affiliated schools, Forest Glen Middle School in Pompano Beach, will lead guests on tours of the plant.
 The Broward County facilities bring the total number of such projects built and operated around the country by Wheelabrator Environmental Systems to 13. Wheelabrator Environmental System is a unit of Wheelabrator Technologies Inc. (NYSE: WTI). WTI is the nation's leading developer and operator of trash-to-energy and cogeneration facilities, offers clean air technologies, and provides a range of water and wastewater treatment facilities.
