    I've been intrigued with the concept of using plasma waste converters as an alternative to landfills, but it seems the cost of building these sorts of facilities is more than most local or regional governments in the US are willing to bear.  In the article you link to St. Lucie county Florida is cited as an example of a US community that intends to use this technology.  St. Lucie has since decide that it can't afford to build a plasma converter.  If these plants are going to be built in the US the federal government is going to have to first sponsor some demonstration plants to show that the technology is a financially viable alternative for local governments.
