Ensuring affordable, long term, and environmentally sound disposal of MSW

Will the Hampden plant continue to use Fiberight’s technology?

Yes. The current bidders the Bondholder Trustee is working with want to continue with the Fiberight technology. If DTE is the successful buyer, it too, has provided assurances that it will continue to use Fiberight’s technology upon reopening. (DTE’s pursuit of financing is based on the assets, technology, and contracts already in place, with a determination to make the plant fully operational.)

Whomever becomes the new owner would have the right to make changes to the facility consistent with applicable law and requirements, including DEP permit conditions and regulatory requirements for diversion. The plant must reopen using the Fiberight technology.
