Existing composing facility (green material, food, and dairy manure) zoned AE-40 (Exclusive Agriculture, 40 acre minimum)

Document Description
The Harvest-Tulare composting facility currently holds operating permits to compost green material, food, and dairy manure. The proposed project will increase and shift types of materials and quantities accepted at the facility. Harvest Power California LLC is proposing to add an anaerobic digester to the existing Harvest-Tulare composting operations to process organic materials into fuel and digestate that will contribute to soil amendment production. Both a high solids digester (processing food and green material) and a low solids digester (processing primarily food material) alternatives will be evaluated in the environmental document. The proposed project will increase total tonnage at the site from 86,000 tons per year to a potential 216,000 tons per year. The increase includes both the proposed anaerobic digester and increasing tonnages at the composting facility. The facility will produce transportation fuel either through a compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station or by injecting directly into a nearby natural gas pipeline. Therefore, both a CNG refueling station and direct injection to the natural gas pipeline will be evaluated.
