Awful-smelling turkey offal

I had to look up a word in the Star story today about the smelly plant in Carthage, MO:

  • Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt on Wednesday ordered the temporary shutdown of a Carthage plant that turns turkey offal into oil because of the stench it emits.

Turkey what? But, according to the plant, this stuff is golden. It's not just turkey innards they can turn to oil, parent company Changing World Technology says. Other stuff they can make into oil:

  • Tires
  • Plastic bottles
  • Harbor-dredged sediment
  • Old computers
  • Municipal sewage sludge
  • Cornstalks
  • Paper-pulp effluent
  • Infectious medical waste

This is great. Now if they can just hold the smell down. And, maybe, hold the infectious medical waste?
