A federal bankruptcy judge has ruled that Kentucky's only commercial hazardous-waste incinerator can remain open. The Kentucky Cabinet for Natural Resources and Environmental Protection had gone to court in an attempt to terminate the interim operating permit of LWD Inc. in Calvert City. State officials believed LWD lacked the money to operate safely. But a bankruptcy judge ruled that LWD's experts made a better case than the state's in arguing whether the plant's continued operation posed an imminent danger to human health or the environment.
