Anaergia uses cutting-edge technology to convert garbage, food waste, and wastewater into fuel, clean water, fertilizer, and electricity. The organic waste is processed using a broad spectrum of industrial machinery, including proprietary equipment. In the example of wastewater, they are able to fully support their electric requirements, parasitically, plus export electricity to the local grid.
“It’s basically taking what is completely a waste resource and turning it into an energy house to provide for the surrounding community,” says David Felzer, Global Service Operations Engineer for Anaergia.
In 2020, Anaergia will complete the Rialto Bioenergy Facility, the largest plant of its kind in North America. Located in San Bernardino County, Calif., the facility will produce the equivalent of 13 megawatts of clean energy per year and reduce net carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 220,000 metric tons annually.
