Document Description
Note: Extended Review per lead The Resource Recovery Project would modify current waste management operations at the Tajiguas Landfill by the addition of a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) and Dry Fermentation Anaerobic Digestion Facility. The MRF would sort municipal solid waste into three streams; recyclables, organics and residue. The AD Facility would include an Energy Facility and percolate storage tank that would convert all organics recovered from the municipal solid waste into bio-gas that would be used to power two on-site combined heat and power engines driving electric power generators and digestate that would then be cured into compost and/or soil amendments. Residual material would be disposed of in the Tajiguas Landfill.
