Here’s a few cell phone pictures of the power plant at which I have the pleasure of spending the next two weeks of my life. This place is a little different. Every plant I’ve ever worked at has been a coal burning facility, this place is actually a waste incinerator. In other words, they burn trash for fuel. As you can imagine it smells like, well, like a burning landfill. But, the stink aside, trash doesn’t burn nearly as efficiently as coal, so it’s not as hot where we’re working, so that’s nice. And I get a nice warm fuzzy knowing that I’m doing my part to help improve a clean, renewable energy power plant plant, or whatever.
Welp, that was my day in Schwandorf and Schwarzenfeld… Pretty enthralling eh?
