Just Released: Anaerobic Digestion Of Food Waste In The U.S.

[BioCycle Magazine] Results of a 2017 survey of anaerobic digesters (AD) in the U.S. processing food waste was just released by the U.S. EPA Region 3 office. The report, "Anaerobic Digestion Facilities Processing Food Waste in the United States in 2015," summarizes data received for three types of AD facilities: Stand-alone food waste digesters; On-farm digesters that codigest food waste; and Digesters at water resource recovery facilities. EPA confirmed that 154 AD facilities processing food waste were operational. Another 30 facilities are believed to be operational, bringing the total operational (confirmed plus unconfirmed) to 184.

Renewable natural gas facility to be built at Pagel's Ponderosa Dairy
By the end of January, manure produced by cattle in Kewaunee County is expected to be fueling semi-trucks and buses in California, the result of a facility now under construction at Pagel's Ponderosa Dairy. Ground was broken Wednesday for a processing facility that will convert the gas from Pagel's biodigester system into what's being called renewable natural gas, which burns much more cleanly than diesel fuel, said Mark R. Hill Jr., vice president of operations for DTE Biomass Energy, an ABC member. More>>

Mentz manure lagoon part of Cayuga County biogas digester's growth plan
Confusion over whether the correct permits were drawn and some misunderstandings with nearby residents is causing all parties to double check project plans. At an Elbridge-based dairy farm a combination of manure and both liquid and solid organics materials, such as food processing waste, is processed twice under many specific conditions -- once in the digester, and again in a post-digester. The process produces gas that is then cleaned by a biological scrubber and subsequently pumped through a generator to produce electricity. More>>
