ARIES LINDEN BIOSOLIDS GASIFICATION PLANT ACHIEVES MECHANICAL COMPLETION


Launching innovative, safe, and sustainable biosolids solutions in New Jersey

Aries has reached another major milestone, achieving mechanical completion of the Aries Linden Biosolids Gasification Plant in Linden, New Jersey. This fluidized bed gasification plant is currently the largest facility of its type in the world. Commissioning is underway and is expected to be completed over the next few months. We are pleased to be part of the ongoing “greening” of New Jersey. See our Social Highlights below for additional New Jersey sustainability events.
 
"We’ve looked forward to celebrating this historic date that brings new technology and progress towards a cleaner environment to Linden and the Garden State. The Aries Build-Own-Operate model provides no financial risk to the LRSA or to the City of Linden but brings with it new, high-paying, green jobs in the clean tech industry for the people of Linden. And I’m so pleased that 16 new, permanent positions will bring this plant to life. We look forward to a long partnership with the Aries Linden team."
- Derek Armstead, Mayor of Linden, NJ

AMERICA RECYCLES DAY 


On America Recycles Day 2021 (November 15), the EPA recognized the importance and impact of recycling, which has contributed to American prosperity and the protection of the environment. The recycling rate has increased from less than 7 percent in 1960 to the current rate of 32 percent. An EPA study found that recycling and reuse activities in the United States accounted for 681,000 jobs and $37.8 billion in wages.
The recycling efforts of communities and business throughout the United States have helped with this success and growth. To build on the progress, EPA encourages every American to contribute by recycling right, not only on every annual America Recycles Day, but all year.
Here at Aries, we have been keeping count of our recyclables since 2016. Even a small office can have an impact on the environment. So far this year, we have recycled 217 pounds of cardboard, 123 pounds of paper, 178 batteries, and 37 pounds of plastic.
In the past six years, we have recycled and kept out of the landfill:
  • 309 batteries
  • 324 pounds of plastic
  • 852 pounds of cardboard
  • 1607 pounds of paper – equivalent to 321 reams of paper
The EPA says recycling 2000 pounds of paper is equivalent to saving 17 trees. 5 trees is equivalent to 1 ton of CO2 saved. To date, Aries office recycling efforts have saved the equivalent 13 trees or 2.7 tons of carbon dioxide.
