LOWELL, MICH. - Operators of the Lowell biodigester have stopped processing waste at the facility after air quality studies confirm multiple sources releasing a garbage-like odor into the nearby neighborhood.
The facility processes waste and converts it into energy, which is purchased by Lowell Light and Power.
Air tests performed by a Lansing-area company documented odors at several locations in the plant, including the delivery area and roofing vents.
The shutdown isn't permanent, but it provides temporary relief to the neighborhood as the company tries to fix the problem.
