ABSTRACT
The article offers information on an experimental in-store system of Ring Bros. Marketplace that turns organic waste into energy. The community-based single-store independent last month received a $195,000 grant from the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative's Renewable Energy Trust to install a system, that uses anaerobic digestive technology to break down organic waste. The process renders methane gas as a byproduct that will power a turbine that generates electricity.
