quasar energy group is introducing this renewable energy technology to Ohio. In 2008 quasar relocated its Engineering & Laboratory Offices to The Ohio State University’s Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) campus in Wooster, Ohio, to collaborate with the largest university agbioscience research center in the nation.
This private public partnership combines agricultural and biological research with an emerging industry in Ohio. Together, we can build a new service and component manufacturing industry that will bring new green collar jobs to Ohio. The quasar/OARDC relationship has been praised by The Wooster Daily Record for being “the first piece of the BioHio puzzle.”
In 2009, quasar, OARDC and the Ohio BioProducts Innovation Center partnered to construction the first F550 system on the Wooster campus. The Wooster plant has been designed to manage biomass in the forms of manure, crops and foodwaste from local sources. The Farm Digester is a small-scale version of quasar’s Industrial Digester, an example of which is operating in Columbus, Ohio.
The quasar/OARDC relationship is the first step in building a new clean industry in Ohio.
