DuPont working to find ways to better battle corn stover fires

January 18, 2017 |

In Iowa, DuPont is working with Nevada city authorities and Underwriters Laboratories to find ways to better put out corn stover fires to help reduce losses like DuPont suffered this summer when lightning strikes set their stover storage ablaze. Lab tests will soon be underway with a foam extinguishing agent to see how it works on stover bales. DuPont is also researching into how lightning strikes can be avoided all together while local EMS authorities are looking into securing funding for more appropriate equipment to put out the large fires.
