STORMFISHER ENVIRONMENTAL ACQUIRES ANAEROBIC DIGESTER

New Investment And Strong Regional Presence Enhance Growth Potential

London, Ontario – StormFisher Environmental Ltd. today announced it has acquired the London Energy Garden, an anaerobic digester that turns organic waste from southwestern Ontario into clean, renewable energy and natural fertilizers, from Harvest Ontario Partners, Ltd.

“We are excited to invest new capital and enhance operations at the London Energy Garden,” said Chris Guillon, Vice President of StormFisher Environmental. He continued, “These developments open up even more opportunities to serve the organic waste processing needs of the region.”

The facility, which was developed by Harvest Power, Inc., turns organic materials such as food scraps, food production residuals, fats oils and grease, and other discarded organic waste from food processors, retailers and food retail outlets into clean, local electricity and natural fertilizers.

“The facility is in good hands with StormFisher Environmental,” said Chris Kasper, CEO of Harvest Power. He added, “Their team was involved in the original design of the site, so it’s fitting to see their involvement come full circle.”

StormFisher Environmental is majority owned and operated by StormFisher, Ltd, a company with deep Ontario market knowledge and biogas experience. Harvest Power is a minority owner in StormFisher Environmental.

The Food Waste Frontier: Harvest Power Turns Juice into Juice

I’m no stranger to green living and sometimes it feels like I’ve seen it all. I wrote a book chock full of recipes for things like Eco-friendly toothpaste and laundry detergent, I’ve interviewed green-trepreneurs, and I’ve reported on everything from sustainable schools to winter biking. But this story is without a doubt one of the coolest environmentally friendly initiatives I have ever seen.

Disney World’s biogas facility: a model for converting food waste into energy

The circular economy at Disney World may not be as pretty as Cinderella’s Castle, but this process for turning organic waste into energy, which is known as anaerobic digestion, could turn out to be the best way to extract value from food scraps and treated sewage that would otherwise wind up in a landfill.

 

“We’re able to turn all of the waste stream into productive products,” says Kathleen Ligocki, the chief executive of Harvest Power, a venture capital-funded clean-tech company that built the Florida facility. “This is our goal – pumpkins to power, waste to wealth.”
