This notable recognition underlines the Center’s outstanding leadership in the domains of energy and environmental management, marking a significant milestone in its journey.

The groundbreaking facility, a recent addition to Bioenergy Devco’s portfolio, stands as a pioneering force in the field of organics recycling. Positioned within the Maryland Food Center campus in Jessup, MD, this state-of-the-art organic recycling facility represents a major leap forward in sustainable technology.

The facility boasts the impressive capacity to recycle a substantial 110,000 tons of organic material annually. This process culminates in the generation of approximately 312,000 MMBtu of renewable natural gas, a noteworthy contribution to the renewable energy sector. Additionally, the facility yields a commendable output of 16,575 tons of nutrient-rich soil amendment, which significantly bolsters agricultural and other land uses.

Perhaps the most striking impact of this endeavor is its far-reaching environmental implications. By curtailing the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, the Bioenergy Devco Maryland Bioenergy Center’s efforts are equivalent to the positive environmental effect of preserving 69,061 acres of US forests for a year.

He highlighted the Center’s cutting-edge approach to food waste recycling and its potential to drive nationwide change. Kreloff emphasized the facility’s role in spearheading the transition towards a circular energy economy, which has far-reaching implications for climate change mitigation.
