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.
