Founded in 2013, CleanBay Renewables is developing utility-scale bio-refinery facilities to recycle chicken litter in agricultural areas across the Delmarva Peninsula. Through the process of anaerobic digestion, these plants create renewable natural gas, electric power and a stabilized slow-release fertilizer that can benefit local agriculture.
The sustainable processing of waste is one of the significant challenges facing our generation. We are seeking to harness science, technology and economics to tilt the balance back in favor of nature while protecting our agricultural sector that provides a vital service to humanity.
All CleanBay plants provide the same environmental and energy generation benefits to the region. While each CleanBay plant will be slightly different in layout, the digestion process for each facility is fully enclosed.
Chicken litter is inserted directly into the tanks and is never left in a pile, creating a cleaner process that fully reuses the waste stream. Each plant will be able to process and beneficially reuse 120,000 tons of chicken litter each year.
