After being closed for two years, the Fremont Regional Digester waste-to-energy (WTE) facility in Newaygo County, Mich., has reopened under new ownership and management.
The facility, which is now owned by Generate Capital and managed by Dynamic Systems Management, will divert approximately 165,000 tons of organic waste from landfill and produce enough electricity to power about 2,500 homes.

A shuttered waste-to-energy power plant in Newaygo County has reopened under new owners and management after abruptly closing two years ago.
The Fremont Regional Digester, which was placed into receivership in September 2015 after the former owner failed to cover its upfront costs, runs on organic waste from various types of food producers to generate enough electricity to power roughly 2,500 homes.
One of the first local companies to provide feedstock to the plant is food processor Gerber Products Co. in Fremont, which also supplied the plant under the former owner. So far, the new owner —Generate Capital of San Francisco, Calif. — has about a dozen companies providing waste to the power plant.
