GREEN STAR GASIFIERS IS MOVING ITS CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS FROM BOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY TO SOUTH SIOUX, AND C-E-O TONY DEMIR SAYS THAT’S JUST PART OF WHAT THE COMPANY IS PLANNING.

IN APRIL, GREEN STAR PLACED A WOOD WASTE FUELED GASIFIER TO GENERATE ELECTRICITY FOR THE CITY’S WATER PLANT AND SCENIC PARK AREA NEAR THE RIVERFRONT.

DEMIR SAYS GREEN STAR NOW PLANS TO MANUFACTURE THE GASIFIERS IN SOUTH SIOUX CITY AND MARKET THEM TO OTHER AREA COMMUNITIES:
