Green Star Gasifiers President Chris Jeffries demonstrates a minature version of a gasifier woody biomass system on Oct. 21, 2015 in South Sioux City. City officials have approved the sale of seven acres in the city's Roth Industrial Park for Kentucky-based Green Star to build a 3-megawatt power plant.

SOUTH SIOUX CITY | A ribbon cutting for the newly installed gasification system that will utilize wood waste in Scenic Park is set for 10:15 a.m. Friday.

Purchased using grant funds awarded by the TREES Heat Nebraska program, the project represents a step forward for community renewable energy, according to Adam Smith, Nebraska Forest Service products utilization team leader.

As the emerald ash borer parasite is predicted to invade Nebraska in the near future, the need for utilizing community wood waste is becoming more important, the city of South Sioux City said in a statement.

The wood gasifier was designed and developed by Green Star Gasifiers, a Bowling Green, Kentucky based company.
