Mid-South Community College’s Renewable Energy Facility Named after Marion Berry

Submitted by on November 29, 2011 – 1:56 pmNo Comment

by Michael Sheffield (Memphis Business Journal)  Mid-South Community Collegewill name its $9 million renewable energy facility after retired Congressman Marion Berry.

The 35,000-square-foot Marion Berry Renewable Energy Center will provide a learning facility for the school’s green jobs training, which includes processing of organic materials into biofuel and the construction and servicing of biodiesel engines.

It will include a chemistry lab, five multi-use classrooms and a 200-seat multi-use lecture hall. Classes are expected to be held there starting in January, and it will be dedicated in the spring.

The center also houses a biofuel production facility including an ethanol distillation unit — a pyrolysis-gasification unit which is being developed through a partnership with the University of Memphiswhich converts biomass to syngas and fuels. A second-generation micro-biodiesel refinery, developed at the college, will be housed in the center and will serve as a production, research and workforce development tool.

Technology needed to create a fully-integrated biofuel refinery is in place, and production of alternative fuels for automobiles and jets is expected to begin in 2013.  READ MORE  and MORE (Equities.com)
