US - Clinton County officials are considering using hog waste to generate electricity.

The report delivered to county commissioners and council members yesterday would hinge on a five-point-five million-dollar biorefinery that would convert waste piped in from hog farms into methane gas and carbon dioxide gas. The gases would be used to run generators.

One proposed site is about 25 miles southeast of Lafayette at the intersection of Indiana 39 and Indiana 38, where two hog farms already are located.

County Councilman Mike Beard has a hog farm within the area, but says he doesn't want the county to foot the bill.
