Maine Public cites UMaine study in article about Exeter farm converting food waste into electricity

In an article about Stonyvale Farm collecting food waste to create electricity using anaerobic digestion, Maine Public cited a 2018 University of Maine study that found Maine generates more than 200,000 tons of food scraps each year, and the statewide capacity for recycling all that material grew by about four times between 2014 and 2017, reaching almost 90,000 tons per year. Even though the Exeter farm has rapidly expanded the capacity for Maine to recycle its food waste, it’s still an underused resource in the state. The Bangor Daily News and The Piscataquis Observer shared the Maine Public report.
