Our Goal at KB BioEnergy
KB BioEnergy, Inc. is dedicated to promoting new, environmentally responsible processes resulting in renewable energy produced from organic waste.
Our anaerobic digestion system (ADS) is a public-private partnership with the City of Akron, focused on developing a clean energy economy.
Anaerobic digestion is the breakdown of organic material which produces biogas, a low-cost fuel that can be used as an alternative to natural gas for generating electricity or heat.
Our facility uses only 10% of the energy generated from the biogas. The other 90% is used to power public service buildings for the City of Akron.
Everyone benefits from this valuable service. Cities are rewarded with a cleaner water supply, less greenhouse gas emissions, lower landfill deposits, and reduced fossil fuel consumption. All resulting in happier, healthier citizens.
