Startech Environmental Corporation announced it has appointed Waste2Green Energy Limited (W2ge), headquartered in London, as the company’s exclusive distributor for the United Kingdom.

The winning team will receive a $10,000 scholarship fund check for their school and its letter will be published in a full page as in a National Publication. There will also be cash prizes available for teams placing first, second and third.

The US Department of Justice and the EPA announced the East Kentucky Power Cooperative, a coal fired electric utility, will pay an $11.4 million dollar penalty to resolve violations of the Clean Air Act’s acid rain program.
