quasar has partnered with The Ohio State University - Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) to build the first F550 system in the BioHio Research Park on the Wooster, Ohio campus. BioHio is a collaborative initiative between the Wayne County Economic Development Council and OSU/OARDC. As the first official tenant of the park, quasar is proud to contribute to this economic development initiative by bringing clean, renewable energy to this area of Ohio.

Additional support for the project has been provided by the Ohio BioProducts Innovation Center (OBIC), the United States Department of Agriculture and the Ohio Department of Development.

Project Profile:

Because of its strategic location on the university campus, the Wooster F550 will benefit from the wealth of research and knowledge available through the distinguished faculty of the OSU/OARDC. In coordination with our collaborative state-of-the-art laboratory facility, the system will feature all of the latest advancements in quasar technology including patent-pending biogas upgrade equipment. The system will process regional food waste and crop waste, grass and manure from OSU/OARDC farm operations to produce clean, renewable energy and valuable byproducts.

STATUS: The system is operational.
