The project proposes using existing technologies to dispose of turkey litter waste through a process that will produce steam and electricity. In addition to saving 700 on-farm jobs and 2,400 turkey processing jobs, the project will create 100 construction jobs and 15 permanent jobs at the facility. Funds will be used to complete environmental, engineering, and marketing studies to demonstrate the technical and financial feasibility of the project.
