Re: Paper from Corn Stover

I've done a Web search, tried to call the company, emailed two people with links to Heartland Fiber, and emailed the Chamber of Commerce of Brainerd, MN (homebase of Heartland). I am waiting for responses. The most recent item on the Web was from 1999, the company phone is disconnected, and the TVA rep for the Southeastern Regional Biomass Energy Program (which apparently no longer exists) is apparently no longer with TVA. I'll let you know if I hear anything. L.B. Sandy Rock, Pacific Northwest Pollution Prevention Resource Center
