What if we could turn food waste into fuel?

The second of its kind on the east coast, this facility converts food waste to a clean, renewable energy source. In a partnership between Save That Stuff and Waste Management, food waste will be brought to this facility, processed into an engineered bio-slurry, which is in turn processed by anaerbic digesters on Deer Island in Boston Harbor into biogas, usable for power generation. Located in Charlestown, this building draws on Runcible Studios’ experience with prefabricated structures, and expands our experience into industrial building types.
