Federal government official is briefed on Lebanon, Tennessee, plant designed by PHG Energy.

Field Representative Evann Freeman from U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander’s office stopped by the Lebanon, Tennessee, gasification plant construction site in late June to be briefed on the municipal waste-to- energy project.

PHG Energy, Nashville, Tennessee, designed and is building the plant for the city. Construction on the support tower is visible behind them. The biomass gasification plant is being built to convert as much as 64 tons per day of wood waste, sewer sludge and used tires to electricity for use at Lebanon’s waste-water treatment plant on Hartman Drive.

The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation awarded the city of Lebanon, Tennessee, a $250,000 grant to help with the building of this plant.

The commissioning of the plant is projected for early October.
