|Giving example – Donation of trees
to Little Forks Nature Conservancy
Dow Corning is investigating a variety of energy crops, such as grasses
and fast-growing trees, as potential renewable fuel sources for a biomass
energy facility that will supply up to 40 megawatts of power to the
Dow Corning Midland Plant.
Several test plots were planted to evaluate the biofuel potential of the
energy crops. The Midland Plant donated the extra tree cuttings to the Little
Forks Conservancy for planting in Midland County. The Little Forks Conservancy partners with
landowners in or near the Tittabawassee River Watershed to protect and preserve
the unique natural features of the region.
