You Would Think A Prime Location For This Sort Of Thing Would Be Washington D.C.

Colorado firm gets approval to make energy from manure

Weld County will soon be home to an 80-acre, 24/7 operation that will convert cattle manure into enough biogas to power a small city.

Heartland Renewable Energy of Longmont, Colo., got the go-ahead from county commissioners last month to build the plant about 10 miles east of Gilcrest, Colo.

Construction is expected to begin this fall on what will be the first solid-waste disposal site of its kind in Colorado and one of the largest in the U.S. It should be complete in about 18 months.
Considering all the manure emanating from D.C., Heartland may have a second location already picked out....
