A project to convert food waste into renewable energy in the Town of Petawawa, Ont. has landed the support of the federal government with an investment of almost $3 million.

The town is matching the federal government’s $2.7-million investment into the project that will see digesters upgraded and allow food waste to be diverted from landfills.

The waste will be turned into biogas to help process organic waste to generate electricity and provide Petawawa’s wastewater treatment plan with an energy supply.
