Turning Hog Waste Into Energy In Northern Missouri And Southern Iowa


(Missourinet) An effort to enhance agricultural practices friendly to the environment just got an 80-Million boost in northern Missouri and southern Iowa.

Roeslein Alternative Energy of Unionville, Missouri secured the grant with help of Iowa State University.

Roeslein spokesman Brandon Butler says the company has been capturing energy from livestock waste since it began in 2012.

Which Butler says is then directly injected into the natural gas grid. The 80-Million-dollar USDA grant will be matched with 4-point-7 Million dollars in local funds.
