Ball State to Stop Burning Coal

by Sammy Edmonds posted Feb 3 2014 1:42PM
Ball State University will soon stop burning coal to generate heat and energy on campus.
 
The “Star-Press” quotes university officials as saying they will stop burning coal at the school’s boilers sometime in March.  The four coal-fired boilers are used to generate heat and steam all over the campus.  The school has used coal for that purpose for over 90-years.
 
The school will end the use of coal to comply with changes in the Clean Air Act.
 
Coal will be replaced by natural gas.
