Centrisys to Deliver Decanter Centrifuge for Bioenergy Devco's Maryland Food Center Project

Food and Beverages | Thursday, January 13, 2022

The plant will be one of the largest organics recycling facilities on the East Coast, with a capacity to treat 70,000 to 100,000 tons of food and agricultural waste per year.

FREMONT, CA: Centrisys Corporation, a leading North American manufacturer of the decanter and thickening centrifuges and dewatering systems, recently announced that it has received an order for a CS26-4DT 2PH decanter centrifuge from Bioenergy Devco for the Maryland Food Center Anaerobic Digestion Facility, which is currently under construction and expected to be fully operational by the end of the year. The plant will be one of the largest organics recycling facilities on the East Coast, with a capacity to treat 70,000 to 100,000 tons of food and agricultural waste per year.

“Bioenergy Devco chose our CS26-4DT decanter centrifuge as the best-in-class solution to dewater a broad range of mixed food waste sludges,” said Michael Kopper, Chief Executive Officer and Founder, Centrisys. “This type of environmental process requires the most reliable and versatile equipment, and we stand behind and are proud that our decanter centrifuge was the proven, lower-risk solution.”

Dewater feed sludge that is 80 percent anaerobically digested food waste and 20 percent anaerobically digested municipal trash with the Centrisys CS26-4DT 2PH decanter centrifuge.Features of the CS26-4DT decanter centrifuge contain:

  • Rotodiff hydraulic scroll drives Centrisys standard back drive.
  • Feed capacity up to 400gpm.
  • Highest G-volume and torque capacity.
  • Increased solids handling, reduced polymer consumption.
  • Auto lube system.
  • Lowest installed combined HP (165HP) in its size specification.
  • USA centrifuge service and repair facilities.
  • USA designed and built.

Food waste is the second most common type of municipal solid waste delivered to landfills in the United States, accounting for roughly 18 percent of total waste. Every year, about 30 million tons of food waste are sent to landfills, and the majority of the food waste that is currently diverted from landfills is composted to produce fertilizer.

The Maryland Food Center Authority Anaerobic Digestion Facility, built by Bioenergy Devcos, is the Mid-Atlantic region’s first anaerobic digestion facility, with a capacity of 100,000 tons of organic waste. The resulting product is caught, processed, and used as renewable natural gas because anaerobic digestion captures energy by utilizing the power of microorganisms to break down or digest the biodegradable waste in air-tight tanks without oxygen.

Kopper continued, “A key consideration in the establishment of our partnership with Bioenergy Devco was the accessibility and reputation of Centrisys U.S. operations team. We took a customer-centric and real-time approach to understand the variables in this first-of-its-kind operation and will lean on our proven ability as a partner for process optimization, engineering, and service.”
