Could food waste power our cities?

7/24/2014

Hosted by Reedy Creek Improvement District, Harvest Power’s Energy Garden was unveiled in February 2014. The facility began by collecting food waste from Walt Disney World’s table-service restaurants and has quickly drawn additional customers in central Florida. Harvest is currently processing food waste at a rate of 45,000 tons per year, including 15,000 tons from RCID and 30,000 tons from other sources. The biogas at Harvest’s Florida Energy Garden creates 27 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year, enough to power 2,300 homes, and is sold to RCID to help keep the lights on at Walt Disney World, amon.g other places.
