May 25, 2009, Nashville, TN – The Ferris wheel at the Tennessee State Fair will be running on an alternative energy source this summer.

The fair plans to use its 12,500 animals’ manure to power the midway this year. A mobile bio oil processor will convert manure plus hay, straw, bedding, corn stover and switchgrass, into 30,000 gallons of bio-diesel oil.

The oil will be mixed with methanol to fuel the midway’s generators throughout the fair, which runs Sept. 11 to 20, 2009.
