Whey from NY's Greek yogurt used to produce power

In this Jan. 13, 2012 photo, a worker moves fruit storage tanks at the Chobani Greek Yogurt plant in South Edmeston, N.Y. Whey, a byproduct of Greek yogurt production, is in some places being used to generate power. One New York state wastewater plant collects whey and combines it with anaerobic bacteria. The result is methane gas, a combustible fuel used to generate electricity. (AP Photo/Mike Groll, File)
