Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management

Project is Located:

Project Description:

The Department has received a permit application for the land application of effluent from two anaerobic digestion facilities located in the Towns of Wheatfield and West Seneca.

The anaerobic digestion facilities accept manure, food waste, fats, oils, greases, sludge from wastewater treatment plants, energy crops, glycerin, stillage and other by-products from the production of ethanol and bio-diesel. Solid and liquid biomasses are ground/combined and macerated and then sent through an anaerobic digestion process which takes up to 30 days and generates biogas which is converted to electricity for sale and use on site and an effluent which can be land applied as a soil amendment. The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application. As a tentative determination, the Department is seeking public comment prior to making a final determination on permit issuance.
