New Bioenergy Collaborative to Create 230 Jobs, Manage Dairy Waste

Dan Cassavaugh, TSM

Governor Andrew Cuomo has awarded $15 million to fund a NYS Bioenergy Learning Collaborative at SUNY College of Technology at Delhi, SUNY College of Agriculture and Technology at Cobleskill and SUNY College of Agriculture at Morrisville.

This is one of four innovative projects in Round 2 of the competitive NYSUNY 2020 Challenge Grant Program. The NYS Bioenergy Learning Collaborative proposes to develop three commercial-scale, one megawatt anaerobic biodigesters at each campus, resulting in energy production, waste reduction for the expanding dairy industry, and training academic and applied expertise for a scalable waste reduction energy producing initiative.

The project helps to create an economical avenue to dispose of regional agricultural residuals including cow, horse and other livestock manure, and helps regional farms cost-effectively expand operations, including increased capacity to handle waste from animals by supporting the expansion of Combined Animal Feeding Operations.

The Collaborative is expected to create 200 construction jobs and 30 engineering and project management support jobs at each of the locations.
