UI continues sustainability push with new biomass boiler

Daily Iowan | August 6, 2014


University of Iowa officials are testing a new renewable energy source they hope could make the campus more green, but environmental advocates on campus say the move might not be enough.

The university's Oakdale Campus — located northwest of Iowa City — will soon start using a $7.3 million biomass boiler that will replace a gas-powered boiler. The new boiler burns woodchips.
