ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the increasing number of renewable energy companies in the U.S. It states that with the implementation of new energy policies that support the environmental initiatives of firms, more manufacturing facilities were established in different states throughout the country. Among the new firms include the plasma torch gasification facility in Koochiching County, Minnesota, the poultry litter-fired power plant Fibrominn LLC in Benson, Minnesota, and the biodiesel plant BEST Energies in Cashton, Wisconsin. It stresses that these new facilities are using Renewable Portfolio Standards, farm-to-fuel investments, and available lower-cost feedstocks to achieve better results.
