We at the Indianapolis location of AbitibiBowater, North America’s largest newsprint manufacturer and home of the Paper Retriever paper-recycling program, want to assure those who deposit paper in the green and yellow Abitibi Paper Retriever bins that all paper in this program is recycled and not landfilled.

It's the best of times and the worst of times for Indianapolis recycling firms. On the one hand, public interest and participation in recycling programs have never been stronger. On the other, the industry's capacity to turn all that trash into treasure rarely has been weaker.

Indianapolis-based engineering and consulting giant RW Armstrong has become lead investor in an upstart ethanol firm that would apply novel technology to make the automotive fuel without using corn as the key ingredient. It would be the first big commercial plant in Indiana to make the alcohol fuel with so-called cellulosic material--the holy grail, of sorts, in the ethanol industry.

In manufacturing and industrial-heavy central Indiana, companies are beginning to realize that "going green" can translate into another kind of green--money. Reaching beyond the standard glass, paper and metal, markets are developing for a variety of materials, from tiny bits of processed rubber to leftover cornstarch.

Indiana recyclers concerned that waste-burning firms could gain status as recyclers--and vie for state grants and loans they've relied on for years--now have a potential competitor on the radar.

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
