Village of Ridgewood Biogas Project Named Renewable Energy Project of the Year
The project was the only municipality biogas system that was 100% privately financed & fully self-sufficient in its energy supply
The Village of Ridgewood Biogas – Renewable Energy Project in Ridgewood, N.J., which HDR is leading in partnership with Natural Systems Utilities, recently received the Renewable Energy Project of the Year award from the American Biogas Council (ABC).
The Ridgewood project won Biogas Project of the Year for its unique characteristics as the only municipality biogas system that was 100% privately financed and fully self-sufficient in its energy supply. Renewable energy is produced onsite by an anaerobic digestion process that captures methane, which is then converted to power. The project lowers the village’s carbon footprint and converts wastes to valuable resources for local use.
The ABC Awards recognize projects that make a significant impact on the development of the biogas industry. The council represents more than 200 companies dedicated to maximizing the production and use of biogas from organic waste.
