IDEAS Tours Harvest Power’s Innovative Anaerobic Digestion Facility
On Friday, May 30 2014, IDEAS leaders in Central Florida were given an exclusive tour of Harvest Power’s Orlando facility.
This facility located on the Walt Disney World property houses one of the most innovative anaerobic digestion projects of its kind in North America. It provides Superpowered™ waste management through its specially engineered design to co-digest biosolids with food wastes from local resorts, restaurants, grocery stores, hotels, sports arenas, golf courses and the food processing facilities.
Basically they are turning food scapes into electricity for Walt Disney and fertilizer for local farms.
Harvest is creating a more sustainable future by helping communities meet the challenges at the intersection of waste, agriculture and energy in the 21st century.
Below is a video of the facility, produced by Earth Matters Productions, with music by Ricardo Williams.
