    BRATTLEBORO — Burlington-based Carbon Harvest has furloughed six of its 11 workers in Brattleboro but denies rumors it is closing.

    President Don McCormick told the Brattleboro Reformer on Thursday he is searching for financing to keep the company operating. He said rumors the company will close are “greatly exaggerated.”

    The company is billed as the country’s first integrated renewable energy-to-agriculture and algae biodiesel project.

    The company harvests landfill gas and uses it to generate power. Heat captured from the power plant is provided to a greenhouse where food can be grown year-round.

    McCormick said the company already is selling basil and lettuce to several grocery stores.

    None of the three staffers in Burlington were affected by the cutback.
