E-M:/ Businesses sue to block new septage plant



I need some feedback before I pass this article on to other counties.
Snippet:
       The $6.5 million septage plant will process waste pumped out of county septic tanks into a class A biosolid to be sold as mulch.
      All of the operations are inside, the plant maintains negative air pressure to suck air in and the county filters the air that goes out, Buday said.
Question:
Are there pro/con considerations for this type of operation if it were to be located in a more remote area without close neighbors?
