Lugar-Stutzman REFRESH:Renew. Fertilizer

Senator Lugar and Congressman Stutman have proposed the REFRESH Act - The Rural Economic Farm and Ranch Sustainability and Hunger Act. I would like to see an inclusion in this REFRESH Act for a carry-over from the 2008 Farm Bill, Title IX, Section 9003, a renewable fertilizer study. I believe that NE Indiana could benefit from renewable NH3/ammonia fertilizer in particular. NH3 can also be a fuel and energy carrier, also now of interest to our local Office of Homeland Security where they with other local entities are working on a "Local Energy Assurance Planning" (LEAP) document. Ammonia will likely and hopefully receive evaluation for its potential future role in our local and regional energy future in this LEAP document.

Please visit my "Model Sustainable Cities" website for more of my work and my perspective, and even a contact form for e-mail.
