Anaergia Touts CA Food Diversion, Energy Recovery Plant (Ind Report)
Anaergia
Date: 2019-03-13
Further to our December 14, 2018 coverage, Burlington, Ontario-based organics recycling solution provider Anaergia is reporting it will soon launch what it says will be North America's largest food waste diversion and energy recovery facility in Rialto, California. The plant will process 1,000 tpd of locally sourced food waste and bio-solids to produce pipeline-injected renewable natural gas (RNG).

The plant, which is slated to launch in mid-2020, will produce the equivalent of 13 MW of clean energy per year. The net CO2 emissions reduction will be approximately 220,000 metric tpy -- equivalent to removing 47,500 cars off the road. The project is co-funded by the California Energy Commission, U.S. DOE, CalRecycle, the state of California and significant private investment.

Anaergia's proprietary technology separates organics from mixed solid waste of any contamination level to recover energy and make fertilizer. The process involves anaerobic digestion (AD).
