Product Description

It is becoming more apparent every day that there are areas of our lives that we need to reduce waste and environmental impact. Food waste is an problem of ethics, economics and the environment. For those that are beginning to understand this impact and the importance of being part of the solution rather than the problem, CHP has been a perfect solution.


Benefits of CHP for food Waste Facilities

  • Divert more than 90% of waste from going to landfill
  • Displace CO2 emissions by recycling food waste into methane to create energy
  • Reduce energy costs
  • Send power back to community
  • Increase community sustainability
  • Provides resiliency and reliability


Example of project

Quantum BioPower – Southington, Connecticut

The facility is processing 40,000 tons of food waste per year through anaerobic digestion, which is creating 1.2 MW of renewable power. That power is being used to power Southington’s municipal buildings. The 1.2 MW system would be capable of powering 976 homes. Every year, Quantum will displace the equivalent of 5,000 tons/year of CO2 emissions by recycling food waste into methane to create energy. The facility also produces 8,000 tons/year of premium organic compost as a residual byproduct of the digestion process.
