Plans to bring Pennsylvanias first Tire-To-Energy plant are in the works, but some local residents are voicing concerns about the proposed business. The plant could eventually lower the cost of electricity across our region, but many are worried that the industry will bring unnecessary pollution to the area. Developers plan to build the Tire-To-Energy plant on the South Side of the former International Paper site and on a portion of the Old Dunn brick yard. The 94 million dollar factory will convert tires into electricity. Developers say they expect the plant will burn about 800 tons of tires a day, producing enough energy to light up about 50 thousand homes. Some residents living near the site say they are worried about air pollution and ash being dropped around the plant. Officials say they will address those issues. They also say an extensive series of tests will be conducted to make sure the plant would meet all regulations and requirements.
