What Could Possibly Go Wrong

Montpelier, Vermont – Governor Jim Douglas announced yesterday that the Department of Public Service (DPS) will award $2.57 million from the Clean Energy Development Fund (CEDF) for renewable energy projects throughout the state. The goal of the CEDF is to increase the development and deployment of combined heat and power (CHP) technologies and renewable energy generation.
200K to Carbon Harvest LLC Brattleboro VT. for a Demonstration Project Yeah ... Here's the Plan
The plan was to use methane gas from the Brattleboro landfill to generate heat that would warm greenhouses and raise produce. Carbon dioxide would be used to help grow algae.

BRATTLEBORO -- Carbon Harvest has run out of cash. The Burlington-based company this week was forced to furlough six of its 11 workers in Brattleboro, President Don McCormick disclosed Thursday, adding that he is searching for financing to keep the company operational.

But McCormick also said rumors of Carbon Harvest's closure are "greatly exaggerated," and he expects the company to bounce back.

BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont company that tried to develop a sustainable food, energy and algae system has filed for bankruptcy.

Carbon Harvest of Brattleboro filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection last week.

Carbon Harvest was able to capture the methane gas and produce energy, but the food, fish and algae systems were never commercially viable.
