MARYVILLE, MO (2009-06-18) Northwest Missouri State has collected another award for its Alternative Energy Program.
The Southern Growth Policies Board is a North Carolina think-tank that has given its "Innovator" award to the University in Maryville for its use of a biomass energy system that uses wood chips as fuel.
That's been in place since the early '80's.
University officials point to the system as saving local businesses expenses because they can give their waste paper and wood supplies to the University to be turned into fuel.
The process has saved the State of Missouri about 13 million dollars in energy costs since it started in 1982.
