    Centrisys to Provide Decanter Centrifuge for Bioenergy Devco’s Maryland Food Center Project


    Midwest-based Centrisys will provide a CS26-4DT 2PH decanter centrifuge to dewater feed sludge at Bioenergy Devco’s Anaerobic Digestion Facility at the Maryland Food Center.

    KENOSHA, Wis. (June 30, 2021) – Centrisys/CNP, a leading North American manufacturer of decanter and thickening centrifuges and dewatering systems, announced today that it has secured an order from Bioenergy Devco for a CS26-4DT 2PH decanter centrifuge for the Maryland Food Center Anaerobic Digestion Facility currently under construction and targeting to be fully operational before year’s end. The facility will be one of the largest organics recycling facilities on the East Coast and will manage 70,000 to 100,000 tons per year of food and agricultural waste to be sustainably processed. Centrisys’ CS26-4DT 2PH decanter centrifuge will dewater feed sludge that is 80 percent anaerobically digested food waste and 20 percent anaerobically digested municipal waste.

    "Bioenergy Devco chose our CS26-4DT decanter centrifuge as the best-in-class solution to dewater a broad range of mixed food waste sludges," said Michael Kopper, chief executive officer and founder of Centrisys. “This type of environmental process requires the most reliable and versatile equipment, and we stand behind and are proud that our decanter centrifuge was the proven, lower-risk solution.”  

    Features of the CS26-4DT decanter centrifuge include:

    • Rotodiff® hydraulic scroll drive—Centrisys’ standard backdrive
    • Highest G-volume and torque capacity
    • Feed capacity up to 400 gpm
    • Lowest installed combined HP (165 HP) in its size specification
    • Increased solids handling, reduced polymer consumption
    • Auto lube system
    • USA designed and built
    • USA centrifuge service and repair facilities
    Food waste is the second-largest category of municipal solid waste sent to landfills in the United States, accounting for approximately 18 percent of the waste stream. Over 30 million tons of food waste is sent to landfills each year, and of the less than 3 percent of food waste currently being diverted from landfills, most of it is being composted to produce fertilizer.

    Bioenergy Devco’s Maryland Food Center Authority Anaerobic Digestion Facility is the Mid-Atlantic region’s first anaerobic digestion facility that will allow up to 100,000 tons of organic waste. As anaerobic digestion harvests energy by harnessing the power of microorganisms to break down or digest the biodegradable waste in air-tight tanks without oxygen, the resulting product is captured, refined, and used as renewable natural gas.

    Kopper continued, "A key consideration in the establishment of our partnership with Bioenergy Devco was the accessibility and reputation of Centrisys’ U.S. operations team. We took a customer-centric and real-time approach to understand the variables in this first-of-its-kind operation and will lean on our proven ability as a partner for process optimization, engineering, and service.”
