The New York State Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) is offering $16 million to accelerate the anaerobic digester sector. Anaerobic digester systems can be used on farms, waste water treatment plants, and as stand-alone systems to treat food wastes. Of the $16 million, nearly half is for proposals to install new anaerobic digester systems in ways that demonstrate replicable business models or strategies to expand the anaerobic digestor marketplace. The remaining funds will be used to cost-share the refurbishment of existing digesters and associated equipment to extend their useful lifespans as well as for projects that will improve the capabilities of the anaerobic digestion marketplace.
Applications are due by March 7, 2019.
