The Bioenergy Innovation Center, located at 28338 Enviro Way, is currently permitted to accept organic waste from approved poultry industry sources for composting.

The proposed expansion includes construction of an anaerobic digestion system, a wastewater pretreatment system and a biogas upgrading plant. There will also be an emergency generator. Byproducts from the process would include pipeline-grade renewable natural gas (RNG) and digestate, which would be dewatered and is proposed for use in the adjacent compost facility.

The project requires permits from three DNREC divisions:

  • A Resource Recovery Permit from the Division of Waste and Hazardous Substances;
  • Two Natural Minor Permits from the Division of Air Quality; and
  • Two Wastewater Facility Construction Permits from the Division of Water

A public hearing on the proposal will be held on October 26, 2022. The workshop provides an opportunity to ask questions about this project. Questions and comments received at the virtual workshop are not part of the public hearing record.

Learn more about the project and review permit application materials.
