Maui Seeks Public Comment on Sludge Drying and Biogas Facility

By Wendy Osher, Maui Now. 

The County of Maui has selected Maui All Natural Alternative or MANA as the operator of a proposed renewable energy and sludge drying project at the Wailuku – Kahului Wastewater Reclamation Facility.

The biogas facility would utilize equipment to digest energy crops grown on former Hawaiian Commercial and Sugar company plantation lands, and sourced locally from Central Maui Feedstocks.

The product, renewable methane or biogas would be used to fuel a combined heat and power engine for electrical power generation.
