issues of concern in rural areas are
used agricultural plastics and farm
dumps. “We are working on a pro
prietary process to take plastic
waste products, such as mulch
films, and densify them into fuel,”
says Jim Garthe, instructor in agri
cultural and biological engineer

burned with coal in small boilers

to be heard in agricultural and
legislative circles so we can fur-
