The development of renewable energy sources is bringing three Missouri companies together. Ameren is teaming up with technology company Enginuity and an agri-business called ECAP to try and add biomass fuel, which is developed from organic materials such as wood and crops, into its fuel mix.
“I think it’s an opportunity for Missouri farmers to have an additional revenue opportunity,” says Fordyce. “It’s an opportunity for us to do the right thing from an environmental perspective.”State Agriculture Director Richard Fordyce says the effort is good for agriculture and good for Missouri.
Fordyce says Ameren also wants to increase the amount of biomass fuel used to generate electricity, which could reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
