College to add farm methane to fuel mix

Posted on May 13, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



MIDDLEBURY — First wood chips, now manure.

After firing up a $12 million biomass plant to burn wood for heat last winter, Middlebury College is hoping to turn another local resource — manure from the county’s dairy farms — into an alternative form of heating fuel to power the campus.

On-farm methane digesters have already drawn attention in Vermont for using manure from some of the state’s larger dairy farms to generate methane gas, which is burned to create electricity.

BRISTOL — In what Mount Abraham Union High School coach Jeff Stetson called “a clean, well-played high school baseball game,” his Eagles on Tuesday edged visiting Vergennes Union High School, 3-1.

The win pushed the defending Metro Conference champion Eagles’ record to 8-2, the best in Division II, despite losing their top pitcher and the Nos. 3, 4 and 5 hitters from 2009.

Senior co-captain Shawn Marcelle, who had two hits on Tuesday and has tossed two shutouts this spring, said the Eagles have stepped into their new roles and gotten timely hits.
