The center proposed by Michigan State University could help launch job-producing food entrepreneurs across the state while giving a boost to the farm economy. By Danielle Woodward. FOR LANSING AND ALL POINTS
BYPRODUCTS: Industries could earn extra revenue and save on landfill costs under a recycling proposal that would allow them to turn coal ash into roads and copper sand into shingles and use other industrial byproducts to enrich farm fields.
