Groundwork Hudson Biodigester

June 5, 2015

Over the last two years, Solar CITIES and Mercy College have built an enduring relationship with the Science Barge. This relationship led to Solar CITIES donating our signature liquid composting biogas system, field tested at Mercy, to our neighbors at the Groundwork Hudson Ecohome garden. #EnvisajThat!

This was the third tank that we installed that day. We made the first three using 3-inch closed-cell soy based polyurethane foam donated by Lee Stoltzfus from Foam-Tech Inc.  Lee volunteered his time, labor, and materials to work with us to investigate the advantages of foam insulating IBC tank biodigesters for improved cold climate performance.

Want to visit? The community garden is located at 56 Buena Vista in Yonkers at these coordinates. It is walking distance from the Yonker’s Train Station and Science Barge.
