Taylor Biomass Energy, based in Montgomery, N.Y., has received the final, local “green light” by the town board of Montgomery, N.Y., to move ahead with plans to build a waste-to-energy facility in the city. The project will be built on Taylor Recycling’s existing 90-acre site.

According to Taylor Biomass Energy (TBE), the vote to approve Phase III of the project’s site plan is the culmination of several years of review of the energy company by local officials.

Once completed, the Taylor Biomass-Montgomery gasification system will generate 24 megawatts of electricity. The project will also generate $384.4 million in economic impact, as well as 82 permanent jobs and 318 temporary construction jobs over the next 18 months.

The waste-to-energy facility will use an oxygen-starved project, meaning there is no incineration taking place. Jessica Callihan, a customer service representative with Taylor Recycling, says that the facility only needed a minor source air permit. “The process is closed loop. There is no burning at all. The gasification is based on a heated sand media.”

To build the facility, Taylor Biomass Energy was chosen to receive a $100 million federal loan guarantee by the U.S. Department of Energy based on its merit and ingenuity.
