Emerging bio-energy markets are here to grow (and see)

Email

BENSON -- On a clear day, it's possible to stand on the highest ground on Mary Jo and Luverne Forbord's Prairie Horizons farm and see the state's pioneer green energy markets in both Benson and Morris.

Some 11 miles to the south in Benson, the Chippewa Valley Ethanol Company and the Fibrominn electric plant are bioenergy pioneers.

The ethanol plant uses a gasifier to produce a synthetic gas. It replaces a portion of the natural gas used to fire its boilers and driers.
