Sustainable Resource Facility featured in Design, Develop, Construct Journal

February 21, 2022

The innovative design of Nicholas Meat’s Sustainable Resource Facility, which is now under construction, is featured in the latest issue of Design Develop Construct Journal.

The article highlights advanced techniques of the project that will make a significant environmental impact. It states:

“Fully funded by Nicholas Meat, the $50 million SRF will set a new standard for sustainability in the meat processing industry, bringing together award-winning waste-to-energy technology, advanced wastewater treatment and water reclamation on an expansive 40 acres in Loganton, Pennsylvania’s Sugar Valley community. While the water reclamation and anaerobic digestive technology have been used as individual components of meat processing before, the innovative SRF integrates the processes to create a comprehensive, first-of-its-kind facility that will reduce Nicholas Meat’s carbon footprint while reusing 90 percent of its wastewater, minimizing dependence on land applications and generating green energy in biogas form.”

Construction on the SRF began with a groundbreaking May 26, 2021. Watch a video that shows the progress that has been accomplished at the site.

The journal article also features project partners Quandel Construction Group and Milnes Engineering. As the construction management firm, Quandel provides oversight of the entire project including site work, buildings, anaerobic digesters that generate biogas, wastewater treatment facilities, and ancillary equipment. Milnes Engineering is providing civil, environmental, waste and wastewater engineering support for the project.
