Himark to build food waste digesters

By Staff | September 01, 2014

Himark BioGas International is expanding its presence in the U.S. through a signed agreement with NEO Energy LLC for the design, construction and start-up of three integrated anaerobic digestion (AD) and fertilizer facilities to convert food waste into fertilizer and renewable energy. Two of the plants will be built in Massachusetts and one in Rhode Island.

“The new environmental laws require businesses to transfer their food waste to energy generating and composting facilities instead of sending them to landfills, so it provided a great economic opportunity for our client to set up the AD facilities,” said Ali Aziz, marketing manager with Himark BioGas.

Under the agreement, Himark BioGas will act as a technology licensor and owner’s representative on behalf of NEO Energy during the design, construction and operation stages of the plants. The agreement also covers numerous other potential plants that NEO Energy could develop at a later time.
