Largest WTE Facility of its Kind Ordered
Gemini has entered into an agreement with the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO) to build the world’s largest waste-to-energy (WTE) and materials recovery facility of its kind on SWACO property in Grove City, Ohio.
The company says the agreement sets the stage for the elimination of new landfills for SWACO by replacing them with a state-of-the-art waste management facility.
Gemini will build both a waste receiving facility and a waste stream recovery plant including anaerobic digesters. Both buildings will have a combined area of over 185,000 square feet. The project is divided into Phase 1 and 2. Initially, the plant will be able to process up to 2,000 tons per day (about 30 percent of the current waste stream), with plans to process the entire waste stream in the future.
The modular 2G biogas cogeneration system to be installed for Phase 1 is rated 5.55 MWh. The cogeneration system comes with ultra-low NOx and CO emissions control technology. Delivery of phase one is expected in late 2014, and phase 2 is following in 2015.
