Three companies partner for biogas power plant - BioEnergy News

Three companies partner for biogas power plant  - 6 September 2011

Three renewable energy companies have formed a partnership to develop and run a biogas pipe plant in Columbia, South Carolina, US.


The new anaerobic digester will convert 48,000 tonnes of organic waste matter into 3.2MW of biogas power.

German plant engineering company Eisenmann will supply its anaerobic digestion technology to the project, while US companies W2E Organic Power and CIYCOR will oversee construction work.

'We have developed a significant group of partners with waste streams for our system and we look forward to beginning this brand new effort to process waste into energy,' says Daniel Rickenmann, CEO of W2E Organic Power, who is confident the project will be completed ahead of schedule.

The joint venture will break ground on the facility before the end of this year, with operations scheduled to begin in 2012.

Thanks for this post. I also found a video related to the things you discussed. In the video, David Steiner, Waste Management's CEO, gives Melissa McGinnis a tour of their CORE program and facility. The first of its kind in the US, this anaerobic converter takes food waste and meticulously converts it into energy. The end result now is energy for electricity, but the long term plan is to be able to convert food waste into jet fuel!
