North America’s leading biosolids solution provider began construction in September and plans facility startup for early 2023.
BALTIMORE, Maryland, September 30, 2021 – Synagro Technologies, Inc., the preeminent provider of biosolids and residuals solutions services in North America, recently began construction of a new biosolids recycling facility in Cumberland County, New Jersey. The composting facility is privately financed, owned and operated by Synagro and is located on land leased from the Cumberland County Improvement Authority.
“With incinerators shutting down across the State of New Jersey and landfills increasingly reluctant to accept biosolids, municipalities badly need reliable beneficial-use solutions for their biosolids,” said Andrew Bosinger, vice president, Strategic Accounts, Synagro. “The facility will be powered with renewable energy, creating a highly sustainable, environmentally and community-friendly solution.”
As a technology-independent solution provider, Synagro considered multiple technologies before selecting composting for the Cumberland County facility. Synagro’s choice of the in-vessel composting process was driven by the desire to utilize proven technology with a demonstrated ability to produce a high-quality recyclable product and to maximize the environmental benefits of the facility.
“Utilities across North America are faced with difficult choices in their biosolids program: How to invest in solutions required to address changing regulations and public pressures while working within the constraints of limited municipal budgets,” added Bosinger. “New Jersey generators will be able to leverage Synagro’s investment in green infrastructure to stabilize their biosolids management programs while securing the favorable environmental attributes of the Cumberland County facility.”
Founded in 1986, Synagro Technologies, Inc. works to turn waste into worth by helping more than 1,000 municipal, industrial water and wastewater facilities, and agricultural partners in North America move toward safer, cleaner and more environmentally beneficial practices. For some, it’s simply cleaning the water supply. For others, it’s much more – we partner with them to process their waste for compost or energy pellets, creating healthy soil and sequestering carbon in the process. As the largest recycler of organic by-products in North America, we’re trusted because we remove risks while keeping the logistics clean. Because we have the most experienced team in the industry, we can offer tailored solutions that ensure no waste goes to waste. Much of our work isn’t pretty. But it’s a greener world emerging from a cleaner one – worth coming from waste – and we think that’s pretty beautiful. Visit synagro.com to learn more.
