PSE&G PARTICIPATES IN PILOT PROGRAM

 PSE&G PARTICIPATES IN PILOT PROGRAM
 NEWARK, N.J., June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Public Service Electric and


Gas Company (PSE&G) is participating in a unique pilot program that will recycle old and broken utility poles into paper products and particle board.
 Under an agreement with Microterra, Inc., PSE&G's used utility poles will be shipped to Microterra's recycling plant in Tallulah, La. The plant chemically treats wood utility poles and railroad ties into recycled wood fiber products. The joint demonstration program is scheduled to begin this afternoon when Microterra will load 20 tons of used utility poles on to a truck at PSE&G's Aldene Switching Station, South Avenue, Cranford.
 William J. Budney Jr., PSE&G's vice president-distribution systems, said recycling old and broken utility poles benefits the company and the environment. "PSE&G works hard to be certain that all of its operations are conducted in a manner that respects the environment," said Budney. "PSE&G is interested in pursuing innovative methods of industrial ecology. The used utility pole recycling program helps PSE&G explore a new and emerging technology."
 Richard C. Fox, Microterra's president and CEO, said bio-recycling of all treated wood can save millions of trees annually. "PSE&G is demonstrating its commitment to the environment by taking a leadership role in the adoption of the bio-recycling disposal method," said Fox. "Our bio-recycling method protects the environment from the possible hazards of present landfill and incineration disposal methods."
