Toxic Scandal, Toxic Threat
and Environmental Racism

Greenaction for Environmental Health and Justice recently released this report on Sun Energy LLC's Louisiana Gasification proposal to build a "Plasma Arc Incinerator" in New Orleans, LO. Greenaction has been working with the Deep South Center for Environmental Justice and local community groups to build public opposition to this proposal for a toxic incinerator technology that is being proposed for a low income, community of color that is already burdened with a legacy of toxic industrial pollution and climate change impacts. To date, there are no commercially operating plasma arc incinerators in North America, due to growing public opposition and the inability of such facilities to demonstrate safe operations, electricity generation capacity and reasonable cost.
