Navitus South Valley Recycling and Renewable Power


Navitus, a renewable energy company based in California, intends to construct and operate an industrial byproduct recovery facility in Sandy, Utah. The plant will utilize a thermal-chemical process to convert mixed solid waste (MSW), mixed industrial waste, land-clearing debris, and yard waste into a synthetic gas (syngas) that is 90 percent methane gas. The syngas will be fed into four internal combustion engines to generate energy for the local energy grid. The proposed facility will process 350 tons of MSW and mixed industrial waste per day.
