Forest City and quasar energy group bring renewable energy to former brownfield site through anaerobic digestion system

Forest City and quasar energy group are turning a once-vacant brownfield site into a source of local, renewable energy with the launch of the Collinwood BioEnergy Anaerobic Digestion System.

Located at the former General Motors Fisher Body Plant in Collinwood, these two local companies have partnered to build a 1.3 Megawatt waste-to-energy system that recycles organic waste residuals from local businesses and produces electricity that will be sold to Cleveland Public Power.

This transformative project will bring to life a new, clean, renewable energy source while providing sustainable waste management for regional businesses, such as Pierre's Ice Cream Company. By harnessing the power of these local partnerships, this joint venture is furthering the City of Cleveland's goal of a greener economy.

Please join us Monday, July 9, as we celebrate sustainable waste management and renewable energy solutions from Cleveland, for Cleveland.

Guest Speakers:
Frank G. Jackson, Mayor, the City of Cleveland
Eugene Miller, Cleveland City Councilman, Ward 10
Ivan Henderson, Commissioner, Cleveland Public Power
Shelley Roth, President & CEO, Pierre's Ice Cream Company
Jon Ratner, Vice President, Energy & Sustainability, Forest City
Mel Kurtz, President, quasar energy group

Monday, July 9, 2012, 9:30 – 11:00 a.m.
During the grand opening ceremonies, the anaerobic digestion system will receive a load of materials from Pierre's Ice Cream Company for a live demonstration.

13550 Aspinwall Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44110
