Citizen's Defeat International Paper's Tires for Energy Burn at NY Paper Plant

** Breaking News **

Late Tuesday afternoon, International Paper announced the permanent stoppage of its burning of tire-derived fuel at its plant in Ticonderoga, NY. The official reason given was because "test data indicates that long-term use of tire-derived fuel would not be economically feasible at the time."

Citizens who have been fighting the toxic plan for three years celebrated Tuesday night, knowing that the citizen monitoring of the toxic nature of the plan and drawing interational attention to the issue were what likely compelled IP to stop its burn when immediate health effects were clearly present as a result of the burn.

Stay tuned for more news on this in the morning.....
