Kingsbury Companies, LLC accepted the Construction Risk Partners Build America Award in Las Vegas from the AGC of America for New Specialty Construction Renewable Resource Innovation at Goodrich Farm AD1. This is the northeast’s largest anaerobic digester in Salisbury, VT.
This 12.4-million-dollar anaerobic digester project was built in partnership with the Goodrich family, Vanguard Renewables, and Kingsbury Companies, LLC. Vanguard is a national leader in developing food and dairy waste-to-energy projects. The Kingsbury project staff was able to design, procure and build Salisbury AD1amid a worldwide pandemic. The plant can process large volumes of cow manure and food waste into energy. The energy is primarily used to power Middlebury College, and the surplus gas is injected into the VT Gas pipeline.
This anaerobic digester is a step towards reducing the state’s dependence on fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions in the agricultural industry. This forward-thinking approach solves the food waste dilemma, curbs global warming, and removes phosphorous. The equipment and systems used in this facility are the future of renewable energy across the United States.
