I am working at a fruit and vegetable distributor where we package locally grown produce for home delivery. Because it is a for profit business we ship out only top quality produce. We sort and grade every head of lettuce, tomato, apple, or bunch of carrots. Those that don't measure up to grade 1 standards are not sent to customers. a limited amount of Grade 2 produce is taken by local charities but for the most part the remainder is currently consigned to the land fill. Having just discovered the benefits of biogas conversion, I was wondering if a we could put a system in our parking lot to generate gas that could create electricity to run our lights, refrideration, and maybe even power our truck fleet.
We are located in Raleigh NC. I have no idea whether or not there would be codes/laws that we would have to deal with, etc.
Any advise would be welcome.
