US firm Maryland Environmental Service (MES) will provide extensive operational expertise to Bioenergy DevCo (BDC) on two new anaerobic digestion projects in Maryland. MES, a not-for-profit, will help the anaerobic digestion (AD) construction firm as it designs, sites, builds, permits and operates two new facilities in Baltimore, US.
"This agreement is an important step toward achieving greater environmental sustainability in Maryland," said Roy McGrath, CEO of MES. "We're establishing innovative ways to achieve Governor Hogan's goal of 100% clean energy by 2040.
"Technology, like through this new anaerobic digestion agreement, will help localities preserve landfill space while disposing of organic waste in an economical and sustainable way. The 50 years of experience MES' team brings to the table will now help facilitate this progressive technology in Maryland and beyond."
Shawn Kreloff, CEO of BDC, added: "With their long history and track record throughout Maryland and the Delmarva, we believe MES is the right partner to accelerate the development of AD projects that help municipalities meet their zero waste and renewable energy goals."
