Due to the growing global demand for food, animal and other organic wastes are a major problem in many areas. Government legislatures are also looking for ways they can reduce the amount of organic waste that enters landfills. Fortunately, organic waste processing can recycle these organic wastes into biofuels and other valuable products. The key is making this recycling beneficial to everyone, producers and users alike.
Bioconversion is one answer. With bioconversion, organic wastes become biomass, raw materials for biogas plants. The biomass ferments, producing gas that can be used to power gas engines to produce electricity. The heat generated in the process can also be used for heating and cooling rooms and buildings. In addition, the fermentation can create high quality fertilizer for agricultural uses.
Over the last several years, ET embarked on a project to deliver a complete organic waste processing facility in San Leandro, CA. Phase 1 included a new 34,000-square-foot, fully enclosed, green waste processing facility with odor control systems and high-speed rolling doors to mitigate any impact on the outside environment. Work on this facility also included office space for the management staff and site improvements for traffic flow and storage at this Davis Street site. The project successfully achieved LEED Gold certification.
With Phase 1 of the project complete and full operational, we are ready to move on to Phase 2. Over the next two years, ET will add a 70,000-square-foot Integrated Waste Processing Facility (IWPF) to process commercial food waste for feed stock bioconversion.
