ABC member Bioenergy Devco has secured conditional approval from Sussex County Council in Delaware to build one of the state’s first anaerobic digesters. According to an article by the Delaware Business Times, Devco, bought the former Perdue Farms AgriRecycle facility and continues to compost 30,000 tons of poultry waste from the site. Now, the company plans to extract biogas from the waste. If approved, the $45 million digester should be in full operation by early 2022. During construction, between 40 and 45 jobs will be created. Once construction is complete, the company expects there will be 30 employees for the digester and 11 employees for the compost facility. More >>
