Clean World Partners, Atlas Disposal Industries partner to launch largest commercial high solid waste-to-energy digester

By
Greentech Lead America:
Clean World Partners, a provider of cost-effective
solutions for converting organic waste to renewable energy,  and
Atlas Disposal Industries, a Sacramento-based waste and recycling removal
company, have commenced the  construction of the nation’s largest
commercial-scale, high solids anaerobic digestion (AD) system, and on
California’s first AD-based Renewable Natural Gas Fueling Station.

Clean
World Partners’ Organic Waste Recycling Center will convert 25 tons of food
waste per day collected by Atlas Disposal into renewable natural gas. The
project’s first phase is expected to be completed this summer and the facility
will be expanded to process 100 tons of waste per day by 2013.

When
complete, the Organic Waste Recycling Center will replace 1 million
gallons of diesel per year with renewable natural gas and produce 2 million
kilowatt hours of electricity per year.

Atlas
will use natural gas produced by the digestion system to fuel the company’s clean-fuel
fleet as well as vehicles from area jurisdictions and agencies.
Natural gas produced from the initial 25-ton per day operation would fuel
approximately 80 school buses for one year.

“We’re
proud of our involvement in developing these cutting-edge facilities. By using
renewable natural gas to fuel more vehicles, we’re helping to improve our
region’s air quality,” said Dave Sikich, CEO of Atlas Disposal.

Clean
World’s Organic Waste Recycling Center is based on AD technology to convert
food waste, agricultural residue and other organic waste into renewable energy,
fertilizer and soil enhancements. The South Area Transfer Station system when
built out will divert nearly 37,000 tons of waste annually from landfills.

“Our
development of this facility makes clear the viability of this technology. Our
systems are adaptable to a wide range of situations and we can get them up and
running quickly. We’re especially excited with this center about the use of
renewable natural gas as vehicle fuel,” said Michele Wong, CEO of Clean
World Partners.
