Generating energy from the farm will be a topic of conversation in Bloomington next week as the Illinois Farm Bureau hosts a roundtable on the subject. Eric Rund with Green Flame Energy in Pesotum will participate in the session. He grows a large warm-season Asian grass on his farm that has been studied in the European Union and is now used commercially there for bedding, heat, and electricity generation.
The IFB Roundtable on Renewable Energy is Tuesday, October 31st from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the IAA Board Room at the IFB headquarters in Bloomington. The event is free and includes a German-style harvest-themed lunch. Other topics to be addressed at the roundtable include bio-digesters from manure along with wind and solar power.
