Ryoko comments on DEC issuance of temporary P2O permit

Actually, it is not surprising that DEC might issue a temporary permit while the full permit is being processed. There are several reasons why this might happen:

* They are satisfied with the stack tests that the P2O process poses little environmental risk,

* They want to see the processors perform a full-capacity run to gather additional data for the final application review,

* They are anxious to see waste plastic being diverted from landfills and don't want to see this tied up while the paperwork finishes going thru the pipeline.

Remember that P2O is pretty revolutionary and is expected to have a big beneficial impact on the environment and recycling efforts. It makes sense that they want to cut them some slack to get this moving.
