Did anyone else notice the application to operate the huge coal fired boiler by STX Renascence in the Avis. A copy of the application is available at the library in Csted. Check it out. They will burn petro-coke and heavy oil to generate electricity and produce water.

Who is proposing this? Is it WAPA for the island? Is it Renaissance for their corporate office customers? HOVENSA?

Coke is definitely cheaper to burn - and dirtier. The advantage and disadvantage will both wash out once they buy the appropriate technology to deal with the emissions.
