Long Island Compost Impact

Report
Food Waste to Energy
Utilizing Anaerobic Digestion
Long Island Compost Overview
• 30-years as leader in the management of organic materials on Long
Island
• Currently operate two of the nation’s largest yard-waste transfer stations
in Westbury, NY and a 62-acre facility in Yaphank, NY (150 employees)
• Hundreds of thousands of tons of organic material processed per year
sustainably (wind-row technology) into a range of mulches, nutrient-rich
compost and engineered soil products.

Long Island Compost Impact
• Currently manage leaves,
tree debris, grass clippings
and other organic-materials
being generated by Long
Islanders.
• These organic materials are
recycled for use in your local
garden and also used in large
scale landscape restorations
projects.

9/11 Memorial
Anaerobic Digester Project
• Formed American Organic Energy, LLC (“AOE”) to
apply prior experience to a new organic material –
food waste
• First project will be located at LI Compost’s 62
acre site in Yaphank, NY utilizing anaerobic
digestion technology proven for decades in
Europe and elsewhere
• Sources of waste to include Long Island based
restaurants, institutions, and grocery chains
• Expect to begin construction in early 2015 and
place the project in service first quarter 2016

AD Project Impact
• Enables waste stream that is currently transported
to landfills 300-600 miles away to be treated locally
• Reduces fuel consumption associated with
thousands of interstate tractor trailer trips per
year – estimated to be 1.4 million miles/year
• Reduces emissions associated with the landfill
process
• Represents a transformational method of handling
solid waste, harvesting its latent energy content,
and significantly reducing greenhouse gas
emissions

Anaerobic Digester Project
• 180,000 tons of material annually to be processed at the
facility
• 30,000 tons of contaminants to be removed
• Includes re-claimed recyclables
• 150,000 tons to go through anaerobic digestion process
for energy generation
• 120,000 tons of food waste
• 30,000 tons of FOG (fats, oils and greases)
• Resulting biogas will be used to produce both electricity
and RNG
• Solids fraction will be integrated into LI Compost’s
existing wholesale and retail bag products
AD Project Timing
• Pre-Construction Activities to be complete end of 2014
• Initial engineering design
• Permit submittals and review
• Final engineering design
• Feedstock and off-take agreements
• Finalize financing 1st Quarter 2015
• NYSERDA $1.35 million funding in place, ESD awarded $400,000
• Multiple funding sources with prior AD experience (debt and equity)
have expressed interest in the project
• Likely will be participation from New York Green Bank
• Complete construction and commence operations early 2016
AD Project Energy Impact
• GHG emissions are expected to be reduced by a combined
total of 40,626 tons of CO2 per year
• Energy generated by project will meet 100% of AD project’s
requirements AND be used by Long Island Compost to
offset current consumption
• Conversion of fleet (16 vehicles) and stationary
equipment to CNG will offset 200,000+ gallons of diesel
per year
• Existing electrical consumption of 455,000 kWh/year will
be met by self generation from the AD project
• Expect to have approximately 50% of the total biogas
production available for consumption by outside parties
(approximately 1.0 million diesel gallon equivalents/year)
