Long Island Power Authority approves food-waste recycling facility

The Long Island Power Authority approved a stand-alone, large-scale food-waste recycling facility in the New York City metropolitan area, according to a March 20 news release.

Also called an anaerobic digester, the project is expected to generate 4 MW of clean energy by processing about 180,000 tons of food waste per year.

The process will cut Long Island's greenhouse gas emissions by 85,000 tonnes annually and will provide a lower-cost waste disposal alternative to food service businesses including supermarkets, restaurants, commercial food processors and hotels, according to the release.

The project is scheduled to be operational in 2020. It will be operated by American Organic Energy LLC at Long Island Compost in Yaphank, N.Y.

The project supports Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Green New Deal agenda and the state's goal of reducing emissions to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030 and to be "carbon-free" by 2040.
