A ribbon cutting for the newly installed gasification system that will utilize wood waste in Scenic Park is set for 10:15 a.m. Friday.
Purchased using grant funds awarded by the TREES Heat Nebraska program, the project represents a step forward for community renewable energy, according to Adam Smith, Nebraska Forest Service products utilization team leader.
As the emerald ash borer parasite is predicted to invade Nebraska in the near future, the need for utilizing community wood waste is becoming more important, the city of South Sioux City said in a statement.
