Unlike other renewable energy sources that require favorable conditions to function, such as solar or wind, biomass energy is available 24/7!
AD is more cost effective than composting leading to an overall reduction in operational costs and is a form of nutrient reuse and recycling.
Tax payers benefit through the reduction of landfill fees while municipalities benefit from the production of a saleable fertilizer. The resulting digestate used in soil applications promote healthy soil and more growth and AD helps decrease the carbon footprint, which in turn helps fight climate change. The management of solid wastes or biosolids for future generations extends out 30 to 50 years!
Support. Transform. Sustain.
"The expanded view of biosolids as a renewable resource offers an opportunity to reposition biosolids as a community resource too valuable to waste in the context of not only renewable energy needs but also in terms of urban sustainability."
