Join LNC alumni and friends of LNC for a day in Duplin County!
First up will be lunch at one of NC’s oldest wineries, Duplin Winery. Next, the group will travel down the road to the Optima K-V facility. “Optima-KV is the first renewable natural gas injection project in North Carolina, aggregating the biogas produced from the anaerobic digestion of swine waste from five farms via pipeline. The resulting RNG will be purchased by Duke Energy to produce electricty for at least 15 years.”
This event will create space for our alumni and friends to connect and reconnect with LNC. We believe that creating opportunities for folks to share a meal, learn something new, and strengthen their networks is key in launching NC forward.
