Green energy facility to be built in South Carolina

Three leaders in the renewable energy industry are teaming up in an arrangement to construct and operate a state-of-the-art anaerobic digestion facility in Columbia, South Carolina. The 48,000 ton per year, 3.2 MW facility will begin construction under the supervision of W2E Organic Power and will process organic waste, turning it into green natural gas for electric power production. CIYCOR, a renewable energy and construction company, is a co-developer and financial partner. Eisenmann, an engineering and advanced technology firm, is providing the anaerobic digestion technology and engineering.

The W2E facility is a sustainable, renewable energy facility returning the nutrients from the organic waste back to the earth. Closing the loop, the soil amendment produced by the facility will be used for local agriculture as well as commercial and residential landscape applications. The organic waste consists of food, grease, waste produce, yard and several other sources which together provide a nutrient and energy rich mix from which the anaerobic process converts the waste into clean natural biogas.
