San Jose building largest dry AD facility in US

San Jose’s Zero Waste Energy Development Facility is targeted for completion in December 2013 and is expected to be the largest Dry Anaerobic Digestion (AD) facility in the U.S.

The Dry AD process converts high solid organic waste into green energy. It is projected that the plant will be capable of processing 90,000 tonnes of waste and producing up to 1.6 megawatts of renewable power, enough to power 2000 homes.

Infinitus Energy opens MRF in Alabama

New Energy Park will Eliminate up to 85 Percent of Waste

Ground has been broken on a materials recovery facility (MRF) developed by Infinitus Energy for the Montgomery, Alabama community that will eliminate up to 85 percent of waste headed to the City’s landfill. The Infinitus Renewable Energy Park (IREP) at Montgomery will be the first facility to combine several of the most technologically advanced systems available for waste recovery to create the most advanced integrated waste recovery facility in the country.

IREP is currently working with Zero Waste Energy, based in California, to install ZWE’s Smartferm technology of anaerobic digesters as Phase II of the project, enabling the system to convert organic waste sorted at the facility into compressed natural gas.
