Communities study feasibility of anaerobic digester facility
STE-ANNE-DE-PRESCOTT, ONT July 6 /CNW/ - The Ontario government will contribute $31,180 toward a waste management feasibility study led by the village of Ste-Anne-de-Prescott and its partner, the township of East Hawkesbury. The project will establish a business case for the construction of a manure and biosolids digester which would fulfill the community's need for anaerobic digester technology. The project, initiated following the introduction of the Nutrient Management Act, will also determine the feasibility of constructing a greenhouse designed to use the methane gas emissions from the digester as green renewable energy. The provincial funding is coming from Ontario's Rural Economic Development (RED) program, which invests in projects that support sustainable rural economies and community partnerships.
