Turkey litter power plant hosts grand opening party as dream becomes reality
BENSON -- Even as more than 250 dignitaries and guests gathered Friday to celebrate the grand opening of Fibrominn, the trucks delivering the poultry litter to fuel the 55-megawatt electric power plant kept rolling in and out of the facility on the west side of Benson.
"There's gold in that there turkey manure," Gov. Tim Pawlenty said. "On behalf of Minnesota, we are very proud of this facility. You are turning something no one wants into something that everyone needs."
