PHG Energy to Build Waste-to-Energy Facility in Tennessee

PHG Energy will build a waste-to-energy facility in Covington, Tenn., from waste supplied by the city.

The LaVergne, Tenn.-based alternative energy company said in a news release it will convert about 12 tons of waste, primarily woody biomass, into energy.

The facility will be built on city property adjacent to the city’s wastewater treatment plant. Biosolids from the plant also might be used as a fuel for PHG’s gasification waste-to-energy system.

The project cost is $2.25 million. The facility will use PHG's downdraft biomass gasification equipment and technology.

The city said it will divert 360 tons of waste from landfills monthly.
