    Part of the Waste disposal system, i think, since pyrolysis is thermochemical decomposition of organic material.

I just never saw one. I don't know if they intend to use the effluent as a Biofuel, or what, but I assume it is a better answer than the other two options I mentioned above.

    USS Missouri just chopped everything else - don't know about the plastic waste - and sent it into the drink - I know - I helped get the ship's sewage system back online at Ford Island...

    Marinisation of the CH47 ..... http://www.ingeniumtech.com/services.../details/?id=4

    I wouldn't be the slightest surprised to go down this route. Unfolded the blades and general footprint of Chinooks is big.

    I think the customers mentioned there are the dutch. I had looked into the matter a while ago. The dutch also want to marinise their own Apache.

    I don't quite know how much havoc budget cuts are causing to these two ambitions, though.
