Hometown BioEnergy (HTBE) is an important component of
MMPA’s commitment towards local, sustainable energy production. Hometown BioEnergy generates
power from food processing wastes creating electricity, liquid fertilizer and solid fuel.
Electricity: Supplies Power Locally
Biogas is used to produce electricity, which is delivered directly to the City of Le Sueur.
Liquid Fertilizer: Supports Local Farmers
Nutrient rich liquid fertilizer by-product is sold to local farmers at a very competitive price.
Solid Fuel: Replaces Coal
Undigested biomass is dried to create solid fuel, which is burned off site in biomass and coal fired boilers.
Local and Sustainable Electricity
The electricity from the facility is used by MMPA to help meet the state-mandated requirement of 25 percent of electricity from renewable sources by the year 2025.
