Waste-to-energy facility approved in Tennessee

Sustainable waste-to-energy facility approved for construction in Tennessee

The Lebanon, Tennessee project will deploy what PHG Energy is calling the ‘world’s largest’ downdraft gasifier.

PHG Energy and the city of Lebanon, Tennessee, have signed a contract that will provide an environmentally sustainable method of waste disposal and produce green power in the process.

The waste-to-energy technology, which will go on line early next year, is a downdraft gasification plant that will cleanly convert up to 64 tons per day of blended waste wood, scrap tires and sewer sludge into a fuel gas that will generate up to 300Kw of electricity. The generation of this power will provide for the plant’s internal power needs as well as contribute electricity to the wastewater treatment plant where it will be located.
