Waste-to-energy gets $1.5 million in British Columbia

 

 

 

Canada's BC Bioenergy Network, a government-funded nonprofit, is providing a total of 1.5 million Canadian dollars for a waste-to-energy project that will divert 27,000 tons of organic material from landfills to create enough power for some 700 homes in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia.

 

The Energy Garden project of Fraser Richmond Soil and Fiber will use anaerobic digesters to convert food scraps and yard debris to biogas, producing more than 6,000 megawatt-hours of electricity each year.

 

BC Bioenergy Network will be supporting two components of the project with a 1 million dollar loan toward the commercial demonstration of a High Solids Anaerobic Digestion plant.

 

An additional 500,000 dollar grant will be given for the acquisition of a pilot-scale mobile H.S.A.D. testing unit called a "mobile energy harvester."

 

The BC Bioenergy Network was set up in April 2008 with a $25 million grant from the British Columbia government to develop and demonstrate the province's sustainable bioenergy capabilities. Energy Garden is also receiving $4 million in investments from the Canadian government.

 

Over 50 jobs will be created by the Energy Garden project during its construction phase.

 

Harvest Power, Fraser's parent company, produces renewable energy and soils, mulches and natural fertilizers from organic materials. Founded in 2008 and operating facilities in the Mid-Atlantic and West Coast of the United States, and in Ontario and British Columbia, the company processes and finds use for 500 million tons of organic waste a year. – EcoSeed Staff
