E-M:/ Factory farm signs on to get manure power

The Grand Valley State University's alternative energy center in Muskegon has switched gears in development of an animal waste-to-energy plant and now plans to build on Muskegon County's largest dairy "factory farm."

The Michigan Alternative & Renewable Energy Center's $1 million state grant to develop a manure-to-electricity facility with European bio-digester technology will now be used in conjunction with the sprawling den Dulk Dairy operations near Ravenna.
