REPREVE RENEWABLES to Help Power the University of Iowa

REPREVE RENEWABLES was chosen to provide the agricultural and business development services for the University of Iowa's Biomass Fuel Project. The Biomass Fuel Project aims to assess and improve the environmental aspects of new and existing biomass crops and fuels. REPREVE RENEWABLES' giant miscanthus, a perennial grass, will be used as fuel in the university's power plant. This project will increase the power plant's renewable fuel consumption and reduce the use of coal, all part of the University of Iowa's sustainability goal of 40 percent renewable energy outlined in its 2020 Vision. REPREVE RENEWABLES will employ the Accu Yield System to plant and establish giant miscanthus.
