Barron Waste to Energy
Thursday, May 19, 2011

At a time of rising energy prices and dwindling landfill space, a small county in western Wisconsin believes it’s found a possible solution to both.  Barron County’s Waste-to-Energy plant burns raw garbage inside 450-degree cauldrons and turns the resulting steam into enough energy to power itself, a nearby cheese plant and other residents. In Wisconsin’s Adam Schrager shows you the only facility of its kind in Wisconsin and the recently completed $3 million expansion to help provide more energy.
