Organics recycling solution provider Anaergia is on course to launch what it says will be the largest food waste diversion and energy recovery facility in North America, in partnership with two major waste management companies, three California utilities and several sanitation agencies in that state. The city of Rialto, Calif., will host the plant on property adjacent to its wastewater treatment plant.
Anaergia will leverage proprietary technology that separates organics from mixed solid waste of any contamination level in order to recover energy and make fertilizer. The process involves anaerobic digestion (AD).
