AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – Vanguard Renewables held a private outdoor ceremony Thursday morning to officially open its new Organics Recycling Facility.
The advanced recycling facility will process expired goods, off-spec batches and any other food and beverages deemed unsafe to eat. The product is then moved to one of the company’s farm powered anaerobic digesters. The product is combined with farm waste and converted into renewable energy.
The company has six farm-based digesters, five of them are in Massachusetts.
