Harvest Power opened the Central Florida Energy Garden, an organics management and renewable energy facility that is the first of its kind in the U.S., converting organic waste into renewable biogas and natural fertilizer.
The anaerobic digester will divert hundreds of thousands of tons of waste from Central Florida landfills.
Located within the Reedy Creek Improvement District (RCID), the Energy Garden uses anaerobic digestion to produce renewable biogas. When operating at full capacity, the facility will process more than 120,000 tons of organic materials annually while producing 5.4 MW of combined heat and power.
