Growing New Biofuel Ideas
CD98: Adam Liefl - September 24, 2009
Norfolk farmers looking to create green energy may soon be planting miscanthus on their fields. A number of speakers were in Delhi last night speaking on the benefits of growing a type of tropical grass which creates power when burnt. President of EverGreen Energy, Garry Spence says there is a shortage of miscanthus growers in this province and believes miscanthus is one of the best crops to grow into a biofuel pellet. The company is based in St. Thomas. He does admit there is many questions to be answered about the product but ensures farmers will turn a profit after three years. Spence says while miscanthus farmers will not be billionaires, they will make a good living with a good market right here in Ontario. For more information email Spence at email@example.com.
