A Connecticut waste-to-energy project Quantum Biopower, a waste-to-energy company in Southington, Connecticut, is prepared to make energy and environmental history.

Southington is now home to Connecticut’s first food waste-to-renewable-energy facility, bringing cutting edge technology and a new spin on recycling.

A Connecticut biogas plant is nearing the finish line and will start up by the end of the year, according to Brian Paganini, vice president of Quantum Biopower.
