Renewable energy through Anaerobic Digestion (AD) reduces harmful greenhouse gases.

More than 24% of waste reaching landfills in the United States is organic in nature.  The decomposition of organics in the landfills generates harmful greenhouse gases.  By diverting these organics to an Anaerobic Digestion (AD) process, we can use this valuable resource to create renewable energy and valuable soil amendments.  The benefits of AD include renewable energy generation, greenhouse gas emission reduction, and waste diversion (US EPA).
