Committee hears update regarding goal of building a methane digester in county


WILLMAR -- A handshake and a signed memorandum of understanding could help secure federal funding for a methane digester to be built somewhere in Kandiyohi County and in China.

Methane digesters use fuels such as animal manure, municipal waste, food waste and agricultural byproducts to produce natural gas and electricity.

The process of using waste to create energy is being eyed as a positive way to reduce energy costs by using renewable energy.
