Bloomfield Road corridor is another signal it is a growing hub of innovation

A $3.7 million loan from the federal government announced Monday will close the loop on an $8-million project to send waste heat and carbon dioxide from Greenfield Global’s corn-based alcohol producing plant to Truly Green Farms’ greenhouse facility across the road.
