it's nice to see a company looking at the future and planning ahead, rather than the usual reactionary profile.

Seems to be a more cost-effective solution to get rid of the waste. I have no problem with it.

Good for General Mills! They will be around for the Next 100 years as long as they never show a Profit and support Card Check.

"At today's prices, natural gas is cheaper than oat hulls, but Whelan noted that the futures market puts the prices for natural gas higher than oat hulls by the end of 2012 and beyond."
Why is the cost of oat hulls even being considered here? In light of the fact that...
"General Mills produces 90,000 tons of oat hulls a year from its two mills in Fridley and northeast Minneapolis, and it will use about 10 percent of that to power its Fridley plant."
They seem to have more than enough oat hull fuel available on site, which means they'll still even be able to sell oat hulls to Koda Energy.
