Utah’s first anaerobic digester for food waste will produce enough renewable natural gas to power 15,000 homes. DMT Clear Gas Solutions is an integral part of this project by providing the upgrading technology for the biogas.
Approximately one-third of the food produced for human consumption annually gets lost or wasted. The Wasatch Resource Recovery project will become an advanced food waste digestion facility that will process approximately 180,000 tons of food waste per year that will be diverted from landfills. By processing the food waste on this progressive resource recovery site, the life of the local landfills will be extended. Greenhouse gases will be reduced by an equivalent of over 75,000 cars. Not only the methane will be used as natural gas but also part of the CO2 will be reused to grow algae. The Wasatch Resource Recovery site in North Salt Lake, UT has selected DMT Clear Gas Solution’s upgrading technology for their recovery site.
