Renewable Waste-to-Energy & Recycling Facility
Renewable Waste-to-Energy Works for Frederick
A new regional waste-to-energy facility in Frederick will generate 45 megawatts of safe, clean renewable energy.
.....That's enough energy to power 45,000 homes and offset the use of 500,000 barrels of oil or 130,000 tons of coal every year.
Construction on the Frederick/Carroll County Renewable Waste-to-Energy (WTE) Facility in Frederick is scheduled to begin in 2013. Developed by the Northeast Maryland Waste Disposal Authority (NEA), the facility will be a long-term, stable economic solution for the waste disposal and renewable energy needs of Frederick County. NEA will develop the facility with partners Wheelabrator Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Waste Management; Whiting-Turner, Hitachi Zosen Inova USA and Burns and Roe Enterprises.
The project is expected to create hundreds of jobs during construction and many opportunities for Frederick County contractors, local businesses and individuals.
1,600 private sector jobs created during construction and 80 full-time private sector jobs during operation
The project will bring an estimated $260 million in positive local economic impact during construction; $12 million in annual local impact during operation
Inherent in this project is a commitment to creating local jobs, facilitating training of the local workforce and using local companies for goods and services.
