CR&R Environmental Center AD Facility

Perris, CA

CR&R wants to transform Southern California’s food and other organic waste at its new anaerobic digestion (AD) facility in Perris. An addition to CR&R’s existing transfer station provides preprocessing for the organic materials, including food scraps and yard trimmings, which will be converted into useful products and energy at the AD facility. The first phase of construction provides capacity for 80,000 tons per year of organic materials with four digesters using Eisenmann technology. When the project is completed and all 16 digesters are in place, CR&R will be able to process 300,000 tons of organic materials per year. The facility will produce compost and renewable natural gas (RNG), which will be used to fuel CR&R’s collection fleet. The RNG conditioning and filling system utilizes Greenlane technology. CR&R looks forward to eliminating 99 percent of greenhouse gas emissions from its vehicle operations, making the road a greener place thanks to the new facility.

For more than 20 years, JRMA has provided CR&R with architectural and engineering design services. JRMA worked with CR&R from the outset of this project to provide a design that ensured operational efficiencies and long-term success. From initial site planning to design to construction administration, JRMA oversaw the entire project, including expansion of the existing transfer station building and construction of the new AD plant. .
