Regional Organic Waste to Energy

301 Belle Isle Road LLC will invest $20 million for the Regional Organic Waste to Energy project for the collection and processing of commercial and institutional source-separated organics, primarily food waste, for use as feedstock in a planned anaerobic digester to be built as part of a brownfield redevelopment. The facility will be located in the Village of Solvay, Onondaga County on brownfield parcels formerly owned by Honeywell. The NYS Solid Waste Management Plan identifies minimizing waste generation throughout the state as a goal. Diversion of food waste from landfills would result in additional conservation of airspace and a reduction in landfill gas generation. Energy will be recovered from the digester system. There will be a reduction in the amount of waste solids and biogas collection. Digested solids can be used in composting operations to further reduce the amount of material going to landfill. The project is expected to create 16 jobs.
