DEP to take questions about Allentown incinerator

    Pennsylvania state officials will hold a public meeting to answer questions about a proposed waste-to-energy incinerator in Allentown that a citizen’s group tried unsuccessfully to target with strict air pollution requirements.

    The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection said it’s hosting the meeting Wednesday at Louis E. Dieruff High School.

    The Express Times of Easton reports that the meeting will focus on Delta Thermo Energy’s permit applications to take municipal waste and sludge from the city’s wastewater treatment plant as fuel to generate electricity.

    It would use and sell the electricity.
