Justine - simply put - why would the State allow something like this adjacent to bedroom communities, a preschool and a college campus ?
Mike Williams--no mic
33:31
Because it's safe

34:14
Are you willing to sign your name to that and risk a personal lawsuit should it not be so ? Love canal was safe too when built.
Mike Williams--no mic
35:32
you must know nothing about the technology

How often will DEM be testing this facility? If there was an issue, how long until it was identified?
Lorraine Trapani Martin
55:45
Is the facility in New Mexico processing the same Is the New Mexico plant processing the same exact waste that you are proposing to process in your RI location? If not how do you really know what emissions will be discharged?
Magdalena Andreozzi
55:54
will you accept medical textile waste?
Tim Faulkner
57:47
Are you using money or bond services from the Rhode Island Industrial Facilities Corporation ? Can you explain your relationship with them?
K2
58:58
@lorraine he said the processing is not the exact same as the new mexico facility
K2
59:13
they have extra steps to clean the emissions
Lily Q
59:33
What is the vent stack for ancillary emissions for that required an air pollution permit from DEM?
iPad (2)
59:45
in Europe, there are a number of these installations without safety incidents!

*@iPad2
Lorraine Trapani Martin
01:01:26
K2, that is not what I asked. I asked if the waste they process in the New Mexico plant is the same as what they are proposing here.

does the state retain 50% ownership upon profitibility? if so what is the timeline
Tim Faulkner
01:13:57
If the bonds default does the state own the facility and the equipment?

How is HCL used in pyrolysis?
Lorraine Trapani Martin
01:25:20
is what was just stated about trucks per day what the license application states?
iPhone
01:25:40
can you tell us about the "Smell Complaint" at Monarch Waste in New Mexico plant?
Robert Zartarian
01:25:58
can the trucks operate 24/7 or will they be restricted to normal business hours for delivering the waste?
Tim Faulkner
01:26:16
Are you still looking to eventually accept medical waste from other states?
iPhone
01:27:25
Smell Complaint reported by Los Alamos 12-18-19
Robert Zartarian

what specifically are the wastes they are looking to dispose of and what type of emission are anticipated ?and what information do you have regarding the waste that is released by the process
Magdalena Andreozzi
01:30:41
how is waste overflow handeled? excess waste stored in containers prior to burning
Lily Q
01:31:48
Thank you for representing us Ms. Caldwell.

what companies internationally are currently using pyrolysis fir medical waste
Robert Zartarian
01:36:06
Mark: please add me to your future distribution list: rzartar@aol.com
Lorraine Trapani Martin
01:41:23
RI should not be a science experiment for your technology
Richard Jackson
01:41:39
Agree
StudioMacBook
01:42:18
This is the future, a greener healthier planet.
Mike Williams--no mic
01:42:30
This is cutting edge science that benefits everyone.
Kim Frye
01:43:49
will there be potential for the limit of trucks to increase in the future?
Amy Putrino
01:44:27
There are not trucks entering that facility 24 hours a day. Trust me, I would know best
Rick Land
01:44:36
Is there a possibility of expansion within the facility or complex?
Amy Putrino
01:46:36
What about the noise from the generators that Mr Campenella stated at a previous meeting would be located outside of the building?
Diane
01:46:51
I disagree that this benefits everyone. This could have major impacts to our community and families that we are not aware of since this is new. Our families should not be used essentially as test subjects.
Elizabeth McNamara
01:48:14
What is Richard's last name?
Elizabeth McNamara
01:48:19
and title?
Amy Putrino
01:49:50
Appointments seem to perfect. There are many variables, weather, travel issues or delays, etc
Cathy Costantino
01:49:54
Your company states in your UNITED STATESSECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSIONForm Fiscal year'18, that your intention is to expand after phase one of this project...What size expansion would that plan be?... would THAT look like re. waste output increase, truck pollution increase, noise pollution? "...‘We have plans upon the successful launch of our phase one to double the capacity of the facility, which will require additional financing. MedRecycler-RI, Inc. has yet to secure any additional financing. Failure to be successful with Rhode Island Project could lead to bankruptcy of the Company."
Denise Lopez’s iPhone
01:50:51
I believe the faculty in New Mexico has an issue with air emissions/ smell . How will this facility differ ?
Richard Jackson
01:52:03
To those of you who think this belongs adjacent to a bedroom community - why not place by your homes ? Or - we can sell you ours at market value now ?
iPhone (2)
01:52:39
this is a multi step process which increases the chance of a failure in the system. in this situation a system failure in a residential area would be catastrophic.
Alan
01:52:55
Why were you rejected by the Town of Johnston?
Lorraine Trapani Martin
01:53:00
A man who lives close to the Monarch facility said he understand what Monarch’s meter readings tell them. “But the “sniff” test tells us the stuff is in the air we smell all the time,” he said adding that the smell was worse “burning the biolab body parts. “It had an odor to it,” he said. A consultant to Monarch responded that the olfactory system is more sensitive probably than any man-made system
CJ
01:54:43
I assume the business model is based on selling the power generated from the plant. Has Medrecycler already secured contracts for the purchase of the anticipated 1.2 MW of power?
Kim Frye
01:57:46
will there be exhaust coming from the generators in the containers?
iPhone (2)
01:58:12

01:59:30
what is the exact decibel level when they are running?
Cathy Costantino
02:01:02
what about at phase 2
iPhone
02:01:43
RI legal limit between 8pm and 7am is 55 decibels
iPhone (2)
02:04:13
what happens when something is in the waste that shouldn’t be there. something this system can’t handle.
Lorraine Trapani Martin
02:07:04
everything is hard to say
Mike Williams--no mic
02:07:08
If there is excessive noise, that can always be mitigated with additional insulation or a containment wall, etc
Justine Caldwell
02:07:53
Are those test results available to public, in addition to DEM?

Mark- Are you going to be taking questions from the Group Chat or should we raise our hands?
Mike Donegan, East Greenwich, Town Council
02:26:28
Thank you Senator Valverde!
caryn corenthal
02:40:59
From Caryn Corenthal, EG Town Council, sorry we have a meeting at 6:15. Thank you for this meeting.
Amy Putrino
02:44:37
The building previously housed the MetLife call center. Don't think that these two businesses are comparable.
Mike Williams
02:48:31
Are you accepting positive comments as well?

Lorraine Trapani Martin
02:51:19
Mike Williams what is your investment in this project? You seem very much in support of it? Are you a resident in the surrounding area?
Amy Putrino
02:51:22
Mr Campenella told the WW Town Planning Committee, in April 2019, that he would expand to take medical waste from the North East United States. Could he please clarify that for the group?
Kim Frye
02:53:31
Are there plans in the future to expand the amount of waste processed at this particular location?
Robert Zartarian
02:53:58
Thank you for organizing this workshop. it was quite informative. I learn a lot though I still have serious concerns. I
iPhone
02:54:03
all these states you are naming will be brought in 4-6 trucks daily?
Cathy Costantino
02:54:58
I could do research for several days and come up with many other non-residential site options for a fascility like this - Can you please explain in detail why you chose this site - other than just the fact that it is on the I9 corridor.
Cathy Costantino
02:55:15
I95
Veronica
02:55:37
Does that mean there are no current medical waste facilities in Massachusetts, NH or Conn?
Cathy Costantino
02:56:45
please clarify -- Why RI, Why WWest Warwick, what considerations brought you here VERSUS a rural spot
Cathy Costantino
02:57:35
We know it is on the I95 corridor and it brings in $ to West Warwick...Why else?
Magdalena Andreozzi
02:58:10
based on 70 tons a day and $600 price per ton = between $7- 15 million annually how does the bond of 17M fit into the performa for profits over a 5 -10 year period?
Lorraine Trapani Martin
02:59:07
Cathy, the building was cheap. West Warwick had the land marked as industrial even though a daycare is right next door. West Warwick planning board approved the project. I would get on your town council and planning board members.
Amy Putrino
03:00:20
Please read the minutes from the WW Planning Meeting April 2019.
Cathy Costantino
03:07:13
This is not a well established process. The science you are sharing seems understandable on-paper but it has Not been practiced, evaluated, tested, validated and replicated by your specific system/facility. This WHOULD be in a rural place until it is proven SCIENTIFICALLY effective, safe and successful. IT should Not be tested with thousands of people around. This company has every intention of expanding - it says it in his UNITED STATESSECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSIONform for his company... IN WRITING
Cathy Costantino
03:14:11
Understanding the quality, longevity, integrity are valid questions to review here
Lorraine Trapani Martin
03:16:45
make sure everyone sends public comment
Kim Frye
03:16:45
how do we send that to you? at what email?
