Cleanbay Biofuels Plans to Break Ground in Princess Anne

Posted: Updated:

PRINCESS ANNE, Md.- Cleanbay Biofuels plans to break ground in Princess Anne to build its poultry litter to energy plant.

Tom Spangler from Cleanbay Biofuels said the company is just waiting for one more permit until it can break ground on Old Princess Anne Road.

Somerset County Planning and Zoning said this process will consist of Cleanbay Biofuels converting poultry litter into methane which in turn will make electricity.

Delmarva Poultry Industry said this is an efficient way to create energy and also make use of chicken manure.

James Fisher of DPI said, "The reason that growers welcome things like clean bay renewables, it's just another potential market for an asset that they have."

This is a project that Assateague Coastal Trust has been following since it was first introduced in 2015. Something that Coast Keeper Kathy Phillips said changed overnight.

"This was no longer a small chemical processing plant that was going to process hatchery waste," Phillips said. "This was now going to be a manure to energy, waste to energy power plant."

A plant that before said was going to bring in eight tons of waste was now going to bring in nearly 100.

Cleanbay Biofuels said they had to increase the scale of their project due to the investors.

Spangler stressed this process will not be done by incineration it would be an enclosed system of tanks and pipes.
