Correcting The Green Bay Press Gazette: Oneida Business Committee and Oneida Seven Generations Corporation & Affilates Fight Suit Over Proposed Plastics-To-Oil Plants

The Oneida Tribe of Indians is asking a Chicago judge to throw out a lawsuit that seeks nearly $400 million from the tribe and related parties in a stalled waste-to-energy venture.

The suit was filed in March by Generation Clean Fuels LLC, a firm that agreed to lease equipment and become a partner in a trash-recycling plant proposed in Green Bay by the tribe-owned Oneida Seven Generations Corp.

The Green Bay Press Gazette article is incorrect in several ways:

  1. The Circuit Court of Cook County, IL., lawsuit in question has absolutely nothing to do with the so-called ‘Waste-to-Energy’ proposal that Oneida Seven Generations Corporation & its subsidiary Green Bay Renewable Energy sought to situate in Green Bay (which is not a form of ‘recycling’ nor in any way ‘renewable’) but is focused instead on the so-called ‘Plastics-to Oil’ endeavor that GBRE and its related companies involved themselves with afterwards.
  2. The death of OSGC/GBRE’s ‘Plastics-to-Oil’ endeavor was not due to the Brown County Court decision by Judge Marc A. Hammer on January 9, 2013. Instead, it was due to the overwhelming vote of the Oneida General Tribal Council at the May 5, 2013 GTC Meeting forbidding OSGC from operating any type of incinerators anywhere on the Oneida Reservation and the dogged pursuit by to reveal attempts by OSGC & affiliates to circumvent the Oneida Tribe’s supreme governing body’s vote to prohibit any kind of incineration by OSGC & affiliates on the Oneida Reservation, along with the December 15, 2014 GTC Meeting vote to dissolve OSGC once and for all.
  3. OSGC affiliate Green Bay Renewable Energy (a misnomer if ever there was one) not only futilely sought to build a ‘Waste-to-Energy’ facility at 1230 Hurlbut St. in Green Bay, but – according to the agreements signed with Generation Clean Fuels, LLC, ACF Services, LLC, and ACF Leasing, LLC – also sought to construct ‘Plastics-to-Oil’ facilities (again, not a form of ‘recycling’) in Cheboygan, MI, and Monona, WI, and OSGC also appears to have been caught red-handed operating an experimental prototype at an OSGC owned property at 1201 O’Hare Boulevard on the Oneida Reservation in a zoning violating ‘open flame’ operation on the Oneida Reservation in clear defiance of GTC’s May 5, 2013 vote.

Oneida Seven Generations Corporation is wholly-owned by the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin.
