GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — State environmental officials are considering plans for a new waste-to-energy project.

N.E.W. Organic Digestion LLC wants to build a wastewater treatment plant near Denmark in Brown County. The plant will process industrial wastes that would mostly
come from Green Bay Dressed Beef Packing Facility.

The project will include an anaerobic digester that would produce methane. The methane in turn would run a generator to produce electricity.

The Department of Natural Resources will take public comments on the plan through Nov. 11.
