Combustible waste turned into fuel

Materials Lifecycle Management Co (MLMC) has opened a $20 million factory in Florida to turn combustible waste including paper, wooden pallets, cardboard, plastic wrap, foam, bubble wrap, film and assorted packaging into fuel cubes and sells it as a cleaner alternative to coal.

MLMC deals with companies like Rooms to Go and Williams Sonoma that pay haulers to get rid of their wooden pallets, cardboard, paper, plastic wrap, foam, bubble wrap, film and assorted packaging. Cement and building materials supply company, Cemex, wants to burn something cleaner than coal in the kiln at its Florida plant.

MLMC chief executive officer is Todd Wenner.
