Bluesphere To Build Waste-to-Energy Plant, Signs Organic Waste Supply Pact

Bluesphere Corp. plans to build a biogas plant in Johnston, R.I., and reached an agreement with Organic Waste Management LLC to supply organic waste for the facility.

The North Andover, Mass.-based Organic Waste Management will supply between 100 and 200 tons of organic waste daily to the waste-to-energy firm Bluesphere, headquartered in Even Yehuda, Israel. Bluesphere will use the organic waste to fuel a 3.2-megawatt biogas plant it will construct later this year, according to a news release.

Bluesphere said it is discussing other business opportunities with Organic Waste Management, including additional anaerobic digester plants in Massachusetts, where an organic waste in landfills ban is coming in October.
