Anaergia Selected by County of Maui to Generate Renewable Fuel from Waste

BURLINGTON, ON, April 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Anaergia Inc. (www.anaergia.com ) today announced that the County of Maui, Department of Finance and Mayor Alan Arakawa provided the intent to award the Integrated Waste Conversion and Energy Project at the Central Maui Landfill in Puunene to Anaergia Services, the California based subsidiary of Anaergia Inc.

Anaergia will design, build, own, operate and privately finance the renewable fuel facility that converts Maui's waste streams including municipal solid waste, food waste, sewage sludge, oils, and grease into renewable liquefied natural gas and refuse derived fuel (RDF).  The two renewable fuels may be used for onsite energy generation or locally in Hawaii as a replacement to imported fossil fuels.

In addition to generating cost effective renewable fuel from local waste streams without the combustion of solid wastes, Anaergia's solution will divert roughly 85% of Maui's waste from landfill, reduce over 100,000 tons of greenhouse gases each year and create local permanent jobs.

"Living on an island we are always looking for ways to preserve our aina and make better use of our natural resources. That is why this IWCEP project is so important. We are looking at reducing waste in our landfill, cutting down the emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, producing a clean bio-fuel for industrial consumers as well as greatly expanding the recycling of materials in our community"  said Mayor Alan Arakawa in a press release announcing the new project on Thursday April 25, 2013.

"The Integrated Waste Conversion Project by the County of Maui has the potential to be the model of sustainability for North America while enabling significant economic development on the Island.  We are proud to be selected by the County of Maui and look forward to be an active and supportive member of the community" said Arun Sharma, President of Anaergia Services.

Steve Watzeck, CEO of Anaergia Inc. indicated that "Maui's Integrated Waste Conversion and Energy Project is one of the foremost global examples of how a clear client vision and a strong public-private partnership can reduce energy costs, improve the local environment and foster long term economic growth for the community."
