Taylor Biomass Energy, based in Montgomery, NY has received final approval from the town board to proceed with plans to build a waste-to-energy facility on its 90-acre site. The company hopes to break ground this month and complete the facility by the end of next year. The plant will employ heated sand media to gasify waste in an oxygen-starved environment to create synthesis gas or syngas that can be converted to energy more efficiently and without significant emissions. James Rollins, vice president of business development for Taylor estimates that the system will take in about 500 tons per day of solid waste, 400 tons per day of C&D material and 100 tons per day of wood waste once it is fully operational. He said the company is forging long-term agreements for waste from surrounding municipalities in Orange County and that most of the C&D material and wood waste will come from Taylor Recycling's own C&D recycling operations.
