Farmer Promotes Benefits of Biomass Fuels


During a National Farmer's Union listening session, Jim Cuddeback of Washington, Iowa, suggested accelerating the production and use of dedicated biomass crops to be used in clean energy production. He talked about the University of Iowa’s Biomass Fuel Project, which sources locally produced biomass to burn in the university’s main power plant. This displaces the fossil fuels that would otherwise be used in the plant, decreasing emissions of greenhouse gases and other harmful pollutants while providing electricity for the university.
