Vanguard Renewables Organics Farm Powered co-digestion facilities currently provide the largest organics recycling destination in the Northeast and we’re expanding nationwide. In 2020, our Farm Powered anaerobic digesters will process nearly 200,000 tons per year of combined on-farm and off-farm organics. The closed-loop Farm Powered anaerobic digestion process converts the energy potential in farm and food waste into clean, renewable electricity or renewable natural gas. Food waste and beverage waste producers get a cost-effective, clean, and scalable food waste collection and recycling solution.

Food Waste Diversion

“This is recycling on its most basic level. Taking food, breaking it down, sending it back to a farm, and turning it into energy so you can grow more food and send it out to the supermarkets. Its coming full circle.
