Bluesphere plans several AD projects

By Staff | August 15, 2014

International waste-to-energy company Bluesphere Corp. is expanding its presence in the Northeast with the development of anaerobic digestion projects in North Carolina, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. The company recently received an air permit for its biogas project in Charlotte, North Carolina, began developing a 3.2 MW project in Johnston, Rhode Island, and has signed a memorandum of understanding with a local developer to develop a waste-to-energy project in the Boston metropolitan area.

All three facilities are being constructed by Austep, an Italian engineering company that manages the development of biogas plants from concept to production. Austep has 253 facilities in Europe. The Charlotte facility will be the company’s first U.S. project.  Bluesphere signed an engineering procurement and construction agreement for a turnkey commissioning of the project earlier this year. The designing and engineering of the Charlotte facility is now underway.
