University of Iowa Co-fires Biomass

February 2008 - The University of Iowa announced that it is using biomass instead of coal for 18% of the fuel consumed at the university's power plant and its Oakdale heating plant. In 2007, the university used oat hulls to generate 10 million kWh of electricity, which represents 3% of the energy consumption on campus. The oat hulls were obtained from the Quaker Oats facility in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
