Former business partner suing Oneida tribe for breach of contract

Posted: Updated:
GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- A former business partner is suing the Oneida tribe for nearly $400-million in a breach-of-contract lawsuit stemming from a failed waste-to-energy venture.

Generation Clean Fuels accuses the tribe and its affiliate, Oneida Seven Generations Corp., of violating agreements to lease equipment and share profits.

Press-Gazette Media reports the dispute arises from an Oneida effort to build a plant that would convert common household trash into energy using a high-heat process known as pyrolysis or gasification. Because of environmental concerns, Ashwaubenon, Green Bay and residents of the Oneida reservation have all prevented the company from building the plant.

The suit is pending in Cook County Circuit Court, in Chicago.

Oneida tribe spokesman Phil Wisneski says officials are aware of the suit but decline to comment on it.
