BioEnergy Hawaii, LLC (“BEH”)
is currently developing an integrated resource recovery facility on the Big Island of Hawaii. The facility will process Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) to produce a renewable organic feedstock for use in biogas production as well as a post-recycled engineered fuel, suitable for energy conversion operations. The integrated facility design will separate and process the MSW by its material composition, allowing for the production of advanced biofuels for use in the transportation and power generation industry, as well as baseload renewable electricity. The organic recycling operations will also generate a high quality organic compost to support local farming and landscaping industries.
In addition to providing a variety of energy and agricultural products, the facility will recover otherwise wasted recyclable commodities and divert the majority of the island’s waste stream from conventional landfill disposal. Recycling and waste diversion is a priority for most of the world; and it is critical for all of the Islands in Hawaii, due to its limited land area and fresh water resources.
Biogas production will be accomplished by incorporating anaerobic digestion operations into the integrated facility design. The process will utilize state-of-the-art proven technology that has been developed to convert organic materials in a fully enclosed and continuous, biological process to produce an energy-rich biogas. The raw biogas can be used to generate renewable electricity or upgraded to produce renewable natural gas (RNG). The natural gas-quality RNG can be compressed to produce bio-CNG and utilized as a low-carbon alternative transportation fuel.
The facility will also produce a high calorific engineered fuel in order to maximize the energy value from the post-recycled MSW residue, such as, mixed paper, low-value plastics, textiles, and wood which cannot be utilized in the organic recycling operations. The high heating value of the engineered fuel can then be recovered through thermal energy conversion operations to generate baseload renewable electricity.
