Rahway Valley Specified Feedstock Enterprise Project

Hawkins served as the lead procurement consultant assisting with the identification of the appropriate procurement law and the preparation of procurement documents. Following selection of the most advantageous proposer, the firm prepared and negotiated the Specified Feedstock Enterprise Contract and assisted the Authority in obtaining state approvals for the project. Under the Specific Feedstock Enterprise Contract, Waste Management will design and build modifications to an existing Authority tank and deliver an organic waste slurry on a negotiated tip fee basis. The Authority will utilize excess capacity in the Authority’s digesters to process specified feedstock to maximize digester gas production, which will be used to fuel the Authority’s existing co-generation facility. The co-generation facility will provide the electricity needed for plant operations off-setting a significant operating cost. Waste Management is responsible for siting, designing, constructing, financing, operating, and owning a facility that will process organic waste into the specified feedstock that will be delivered to the Authority’s receiving facility.
