Partnership Building Anaerobic Digestion Unit in Georgia

A public-private partnership in Augusta, Ga., will build an anaerobic digestion facility in Augusta.

Augusta Renewable Energy LLC, a division of Pasig City, the Philippines-based First Generation Energy, and the Augusta Economic Development Authority said in a news release that the primary renewable energy source for Augusta Renewable Energy will be used coffee grounds from the new Starbucks soluble facility in Augusta.

The company will invest $20 million and add 10 jobs with the facility.

First Generation Energy has formed a strategic partnership with the environmental technology company Eisenmann Corp., Crystal Lake, Ill., for the technology, build-out and operation, and with Peoria, Ill.-based Caterpillar Inc. by using its newly acquired MWM cogeneration engines. The company also will produce a private label line of soil amendments through its partnership with a Fortune 200 company.
