Firm Launching Anaerobic Digestion Waste to Energy Facility

Waste No Energy LLC is developing an anaerobic digestion facility to make energy from animal and food waste.

The Monticello, Ind.-based Waste No Energy said in a news release the multimillion dollar project will begin generating 8.2 kilowatts of power in December.

The company, owned by RAKR Farms, said the facility’s digester will convert a mix of manure and food waste to make organic liquid fertilizer. The digestion process produces no waste products, the firm added.

The facility will enable the collection of 125 tons of food waste and 26 tons of manure daily.

The renewable energy will be purchased by the Northern Indiana Public Service Co.
