Martin Construction Resource - Anaerobic Digesters
simple, creative, cost-effective solutions to engineering, design, and construction problems

Company Description:

Martin Construction Resource provides turnkey general contracting services to carry out all construction and subcontracting for your project. They have 30 years of experience in project management, including engineering, design, and construction.


Further aspects of their experience include excavation, concrete work, plumbing, electrical services (such as interconnections and permitting assistance), and more! The Martin Construction Resource team’s design/build approach is one that has been developed over time, based on years of working together on a variety of projects.



Technology Description:

Martin Construction Resource has designed and built over one hundred agricultural digesters, the first being constructed in 1982. Today, MCR routinely provides round, mixed-tank-digester and covered-lagoon-digester designs for bio-gas production from farm and/or food waste.


The parent company, Martin Energy Group (MEG), provides bio-gas generator sets and digester controls.


Custom design often results in an MCR project costing less than the competition, while meeting or exceeding the performance of other systems in bio-gas and electricity output.


Their turnkey installation services include mechanical systems, bio-gas flares, digester pumps, electrical components, piping for generator hookup, hot water systems, gas piping, electrical wiring for utility buildings, and water separator systems.


MCR’s project services also include startup, digester operations, troubleshooting, training, and warranty support.
