Cargill Nears Completion of $10M Project

cargillThe Times Herald says that Cargill Salt in St. Clair, MI, is a finalist in the Michigan Governor’s Energy Excellence Awards.

The possible award is in recognition of a nearly complete $10 million energy project that has been ongoing since April, 2015. The plant, which the story says produces food-grade salts and water conditioning salts, has reduced its emission footprint by phasing out a coal-powered system. That system — which features a 165-foot tall toward and had been in use since 1950 – was replaced with a natural gas boiler.

The company is competing in the Industrial/Manufacturing category. The winner will be announced within weeks.

The shuttering of seven Consumer Energy coal miles on April 18 will save Michigan rate payers $38 million.
