Anaerobic digestion facility
Hennepin County is proposing to build an anaerobic digestion (AD) facility adjacent to the county’s Brooklyn Park Transfer Station at 9401 83rd Avenue in the City of Brooklyn Park. The facility would be capable of processing a minimum of 25,000 tons per year of organics to produce clean, renewable energy and beneficial agricultural and soil products.
This facility will help the county make progress toward zero waste and climate action goals.
Proposed timeline: anaerobic digestion facility
A vendor has been selected, and the anaerobic digestion facility is currently in the design phase. In the proposed timeline, permitting and construction would happen in 2023 to 2025, and the facility would start up in 2026.
