Lumber Company Locates Kilns at Landfill to Use Methane
« on: September 24, 2015, 12:33:34 AM »
Johnson Brothers Lumber, located in Cazenovia, NY, is erecting drying kilns on a landfill in Lincoln that will use methane gas generated from the landfill to fuel the ovens that will dry lumber. The second phase of the Johnson Brothers Lumber project will be to use the moist excess heat from the kiln to heat an onsite greenhouse, according to The Oneida Dispatch.
