Fatal crash in Christchurch

There has been a fatal crash following what appears to have been a police chase in Christchurch. [10/07/2010 ]
It happened early this morning at the intersection of Moorhouse Avenue and Manchester Street. Police say a Mitsubishi Lancer with six people in it was pulled over, but the driver drove off at speed as an officer approached it. It went through a set of red lights before crashing into a concrete power pole. One person was killed in the impact, two others are critical and one is in a serious condition in Christchurch Hospital.

Municiple Waste to Energy in Blairstown!

Comparison of greenhouse gas emissions for mun...Image via Wikipedia
In Iowa, Fiberight announced that it commenced production at the first commercial cellulosic ethanol plant to enzymatic conversion technology and industrial / municipal solid waste (MSW) as feedstock. 

Fiberight recently completed its initial stage development by converting a former first generation corn ethanol plant in Blairstown, Iowa to cellulosic biofuel production which incorporates specialized waste treatment and biochemical technologies to efficiently turn MSW into biofuel.

Fiberight has retained Source Capital Group, Inc of Westport, CT to complete a financing led by Venture Cross Partners of Great Falls, VA to provide expansion capital for the Blairstown biorefinery. 

Following a total $24 million investment, the facility will be scaled to final commercial production capacity of approximately 6 million gallons of biofuel per year in 2011.
(A curious development notably that NZ's Ministry of Commerce and Ministry For the Environment and Christchurch City Council said, couldnt be done... and look where is is "Blairstown",  sheese, ya couldnt make it up if ya tried! and all on the day ETS is being held to account! )
