Columbia company hopes to fuel power plant with corn waste

Enginuity is stepping to the forefront in creating and marketing a new form of renewable energy, and they hope the Columbia Municipal Power Plant will be their proving ground.

Enginuity is negotiating a contract to sell pellets made of corn waste to Columbia Water and Light. The state Department of Natural Resources is reviewing a permit that would let the power plant use Enginuity’s pellets for up to 50 percent of its fuel.
