This project is a crucial step towards solving the Michigan PFAS problem. Our state needs to invest in this grant application. Not only does this project provide a proactive approach to solving a real problem, it also creates a renewable energy source while providing a plan that others can follow.

The GCDC is doing everything possible to be proactive concerning the issue with the PFAS. This digester is a win-win for both the county of Genesee and the residents of Genesee. By having this system on line helps not only in the reduction of PFAS but will also give us a good source of energy that will also benefit the residents of Genesee county. Please consider this grant for approval for it will keep our environment much cleaner. Regards, Brian Arnes

I support this project. The stated goal of the EIED grant program is to develop low carbon energy infrastructure, and the MI Healthy Climate Plan calls for Michigan to reach carbon neutrality by 2050, with a prioritization on actions that will provide the most rapid gains in GHG reductions. Additionally, many local governments here in Michigan have set even more ambitious goals that will help move our state to carbon neutrality in an equitable manner. But achieving these goals can be difficult for these local governments and other similar entities as they do not have the financial resources that are available to larger entities, such as large corporations that report profits in the hundreds of millions of dollars annually. Therefore, funds from this grant should go towards projects like this one. Through this project, Genesee County will be able to significantly reduce their carbon emissions by installing digesters. Unfortunately, human waste is not going anywhere, especially as populations in Michigan increase due to climate migration, so this is something greatly needed by the County, and will also help others as a case study for what they can do to improve their own operations. This is perfectly in line with the stated goal of the EIED grant program, and thus should be considered for funding.

I am in support of this project. Implementing digesters for human waste at a wastewater treatment plant aligns with the stated goal of the EIED grant program to develop low-carbon infrastructure. Human waste and the methane from it isn’t going anywhere, so why not use it to produce energy.
