New bioenergy facility set for Twin Cities?

A new multi-million dollar biogas facility is planned for the region of Minneapolis-Saint Paul, otherwise known as the Twin Cities.

Rendering business Sanimax has been reported as wanting to build a $30 million (€23.1 million) plant which would convert food waste into natural gas and compost, in conjunction with Wisconsin-based Green Energy Partners.

The city’s planning commission is to debate the project in June, but the natural gas would be re-distributed around Sanimax’s rendering facility as well as possibly being sold off-site too.
