EKU Starting Biofuel Program

Eastern Kentucky University is going green with a new program.

On Monday in Frankfort, Governor Beshear and EKU officials announced they will begin building a biofuel research and production facility in Clark County.

The facility will run by EKU and will take four to five years to build.

EKU is planning to develop a sustainable bio fuel product to help rising energy costs, using non-edible vegetation like tobacco stalks and wood chips.
