Tusten digester installed

Posted

NARROWSBURG, NY — The Tusten food digester, delivered all the way from Seattle, WA, was installed near the Tusten Town Barn on January 21, thanks to the donated time and services of the Tusten Highway Department, Prestige Towing and Tusten Energy Committee members Brandi Merolla, Jennifer Porter, Scott Porter and Sean Harrington.

A project fully funded by New York State Department of Environmental Conservation grant monies, the HORSE (High solids, Organic waste, Recycling System with Electrical output) digester was manufactured by Impact Bioenergy; it is the first municipality-operated food scrap digester in the nation to be powered by municipal solar array.

The HORSE digests food-scrap waste through an anaerobic process that generates probiotic plant food and biogas as end products. Operation is scheduled to begin this spring.
