The process will enable ZWE to create high quality compost while recovering biogas. Once this project is complete, the facility will be processing over 150,000 tons per year of organic waste that would otherwise be disposed in a landfill. The high quality compost produced will be used to enrich soils, while the renewable biogas will not only be sold as energy for the utility power grid, but will also be used to fuel local plants and facilities. The plans are being finalized and the facility will be under construction starting in 2011.
