All right. So let`s look at the composting film “Zero Waste Energy Development”. Zero Waste Energy Development has come back to us with a very convincing proposal combining the use of their very well established composting plant, which you can see on the scale back in this picture. You can see the 156 hectare site where they compost both green waste and food waste. Food waste is in white bags, and green composting waste is brown. Thus, they made a very well thought out and well developed proposal for a dry dry fermentation with strong solid fermentation with a composting plant closed on the backside for food waste. They may transfer some of the weak BTU material, the heavily wooded material, directly to the composting plant to preserve the capacity of the AD facility. Environmental impact: An anaerobic fermenter would have three major effects on Seattle`s UW campus: 1) carbon emissions: anaerobic excavations would exploit about 135 pounds of food waste per day, reducing the amount of food waste transported from the UW campus to the Cedar Grove composting plant. Reducing the amount of food waste transported to Cedar Grove would reduce CO2 emissions from trucks travelling from UW to Cedar Grove. 2) Soil health: An anaerobic fermenter would produce nutrient-rich compost that could be applied to the UW farm and the urban horticulture centre (and other sites on campus).
3) Renewable energy: an anaerobic fermenter would be a small model for producing renewable energy from food waste. Food waste is broken down by methane-producing microbes, and methane can be used to power an electricity generator. In short, that is how I think the public sectors are particularly important when it comes to introducing conversion technologies in local areas, so we have spent a lot of time focusing and helping each other. Here too, we have a lease for the land on which the AD facility is built, so it was an opportunity that we could really seize. The Waste Agreement – our contract of 15 for Zero Waste Energy Development allows them to obtain financing for the construction of this facility, and the agreements also have important information on how to separate materials, how risk and profit distribution are made, etc.
