Innovative new project taps energy from feedstock waste

 Brendle Group is performing technical and economic due diligence for a dry anaerobic digestion system for Mass Natural Fertilizer (MNF), an established composting operation in north-central Massachusetts. Anaerobic digestion is the biological decomposition of organic feedstocks in an oxygen-free environment. A combination of enzymes and bacteria convert the feedstocks into biogas, which is typically 65% methane, and stabilized pulp that is ideally suited for composting into commercial soil amendment. While anaerobic digestion has been used in the U.S. for many years in wastewater treatment plants and on dairies, MNF asked Brendle Group to investigate dry digestion technologies gaining favor in Europe. MNF will digest materials that would normally go to a landfill, such as byproducts from grocery stores, food processors, and waste haulers. Biogas will then be combusted in an engine generator to produce renewable, carbon-neutral electricity. It’s a project that creates wins all around
