WAILUKU >> Some of the nation's biggest names in waste-conversion technologies are interested in building a plant on Maui.

Maui County's call for a developer to build the plant is getting a lot of bites.

The county last month began seeking bids to convert the island's solid waste into energy in an effort to cut down on the amount of trash that ends up in the central landfill in Puunene.

As of last week, the Maui News reports that the Department of Environmental Management had received 111 prospective bidders. Those include industry leaders Jacoby Energy, Zero Waste Energy, Novi Energy and Novo Energy. Officials say on the list are numerous companies or individuals listing Hawaii addresses.

Maui generates between 450 tons and 500 tons of waste a day.
