Swedish king to visit Flint

The king of Sweden is coming to Flint.

King Carl XVI Gustaf is expected to visit Kettering University on Sept. 26 during a two-day trip to Michigan.

Kettering Provost Michael Harris tells The Flint Journal that plans are under way for a ceremony featuring Gov. Jennifer Granholm. He says the king is expected to talk with Detroit automakers during his visit, but Flint is his main destination.

Kettering is hoping Swedish Biogas International of Linkoping will build a plant in Flint that would convert human waste into vehicle fuel and generate heat and electricity.
