A new biomass boiler at the University of Illinois will burn perennial grasses grown on the campus’ energy farm to keep the greenhouse warm throughout the winter. The system is replacing a propane gas heater and will release fewer carbon-dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. The pilot project, which may someday help power other parts of campus, is another step in the UI’s plan to achieve “carbon neutrality” no later than 2050. (News-Gazette)
