Clarkson Receives Waste-To-Energy Research Grant

Tools

Clarkson University will receive a grant of nearly $500,000 to research ways to turn organic waste into energy.

Congressman Bill Owens announced the U.S. Department of Agriculture grant Thursday.

The money will fund research into what are known as anaerobic digesters that help break down organic waste and turn it into methane, which can be burned like natural gas to generate electricity and heat.

Project director and Clarkson University Professor Stefan Grimberg says, "these funds will go toward building demonstration models used for training a large number of farmers in the region who could potentially benefit from this technology."
