What do you get when you mix wood waste and horse manure? Houston-based MaxWest Environmental Systems and the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders' and Owners' Association believe they have the answer.

The two entities have announced a partnership to create renewable energy with this unlikely recipe. Horse waste will be collected from the Florida equine facilities and transported across Marion County, Fla., to a site where it will be mixed with wood waste and then gasified in MaxWest’s integrated gasification system to produce renewable thermal energy. This, in turn, will then be used to produce green electric power for sale to the local power grid.

"The thoroughbred industry is an important, billion-dollar business for the county, so our partnership is a special one," says Bill Baker, vice president of marketing for MaxWest Environmental Systems. "We're taking vital steps to ensure that MaxWest’s technology will provide the seamless process Ocala and Marion County are looking for to manage this waste stream process."
