Large AD facility under development in California

By Staff | January 30, 2014

CR&R Environmental Services is building what it believes to be the largest organics conversion facility in North America at its Perris, Calif., location. The Perris anaerobic digestion facility is permitted to process more than 80,000 tons of organic waste per year in its first phase. The facility could expand to process nearly four times that volume of waste during future phases. 

The plant will feature Eisenmann’s high-solids anaerobic digestion technology. Materials received will include both green and food waste. 

According to Kyle Goehring, regional sales manager for Eisenmann, construction of phase one should be complete in June, with commissioning completed by October. "The unique location, size, feedstock recipe and partner make the CR&R project unprecedented for Eisenmann as well as the industry,” he said. “Eisenmann is excited by the transformative nature of this project for both the refuse and biogas industries."
