Waste from Kraft, Fort Drum, schools, and farms could not only produce energy, but also steam heat and a high-grade fertilizer. Brennan went on to say that Veolia has done some preliminary research and found that Lewis County has enough convertible aggregate to make at least a megawatt of energy to make the system sustainable.
