Wood Ash Recycling in the News...

WCAX-TV, Channel 3 in Burlington, VT aired a story about the agricultural use of wood ash from the Burlington Electric wood-fired electricity generator in the city’s Intervale area.   The plant produces 100 tons of wood ash per week, according to the report, and Resource Management, Inc. manages the testing, marketing, and distribution to area farms.  The story notes that the cost to a farmer of the potash supplied in wood ash is about ½ that of traditional chemical fertilizer potash. The story includes video and an interview with a farmer in Alburgh.  View it here.
