Quantum Biopower has opened a 40,000 tonne per year mixed organic waste anaerobic digestion plant incorporating Global Water Engineering’s GWE RAPTOR technology.

U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., started his political career here, and he returned to town last week to tour a newly opened, $14 million facility that soon will begin producing electricity using food waste from across the state.
