In Ontario, Canada StormFisher Environmental has acquired the London Energy Garden, an anaerobic digester which processes organic waste from southwestern Ontario into biogas and natural fertilisers, from Harvest Ontario Partners – a part of Waltham, Massachusetts based AD developer, Harvest Power.
The facility, which was developed by Harvest Power, turns organic materials such as food scraps, food production residuals, fats oils and grease, and other discarded organic waste from food processors, retailers and food retail outlets into biogas which is used to generate electricity, as well as fertilisers.
StormFisher Environmental is majority owned and operated by StormFisher, Ltd, a company said to have deep Ontario market knowledge and biogas experience. Harvest Power is a minority owner in StormFisher Environmental.
The facility started operations in spring 2013, has a capacity: 70,000 tonnes per year and generates approximately 6 MW combined heat and power as well as 5200 tonnes of granular fertiliser.
“We are excited to invest new capital and enhance operations at the London Energy Garden,” commented Chris Guillon, vice president of StormFisher Environmental. “These developments open up even more opportunities to serve the organic waste processing needs of the region.”
According to Chris Kasper, CEO of Harvest Power, the facility is in good hands. He added, “Their team was involved in the original design of the site, so it’s fitting to see their involvement come full circle,” he commented.
