90,000 TPA Dry Anaerobic Digestion Biogas Plant in San Jose Uses Special Concrete

Specially engineered concrete supplied by Central Concrete -a business unit of U.S. Concrete (NASDAQ-USCR) – is being used in the construction of Zero Waste Energy’s 90,000 ton (81,600 tonne) per year dry anaerobic digestion facility in San Jose, California.

According to the concrete supplier, also based in San Jose, it had to develop several innovative concrete solutions to address the demanding specifications required by the biogas facility.

The company said that along with concreting contractor Jos. J. Albanese, it not only responded to a significant acceleration in the schedule, but also devised mixes and placement solutions that addressed the unique issues faced when working with waste materials.

The project is being constructed by Campbell, California based South Bay Construction.

The dry AD process used at the facility will convert high solid organic waste into biogas for energy generation and fertiliser. It is expected to process around 90,000 tons of waste and produce up to 1.6 MW of electricity.
