Hello all
First, a hearty ?well done? to Gary for being quoted!
It seems that zero emissions, like many environmental topics, is suddenly getting some attention in the popular press.  Below, an article from the Boston Globe of 3/11.
Best regards

The 'zero waste' movement imagines a future where everything is a renewable resource. Sound impossible? From New Zealand to New England, it's already changing the way governments and companies do business.

IMAGINE AN INDUSTRIAL system in which nothing ever really dies or gets discarded. The highly "unnatural" processes of chemical engineering, manufacturing, packaging, distribution, and disposal would all aspire to a state of nature, where anything and everything is a renewable resource. The familiar three R's of "reduce, reuse, recycle" would apply not just to products at the end of their life span, but to the materials and methods that created them.
