Monticello biomass project seeks new location

A proposed biomass project in Monticello, White County is seeking a new location as provisional plans were scrapped.

Theorganic waste processing plant, to be built by a consortium of local farmers, will no longer be based on East Luse Road as rezoning from agricultural to heavy industry was required. The plant would use local fats, oils, food waste and manure as feedstocks.

Natural gas and electricity provider Northern Indiana Public Service Co. (NIPSCO), who approved the potential purchase of any energy created by the digester in the future, will be keeping an eye on developments.

The director of economic development in White County, Connie Neininger, confirmed the group is still ‘exploring all their options by analysing and reviewing sites’.
