Synagro Technologies Inc. plans to build a bio-recycling center in southwest Florida. 

The Baltimore-based Synagro said in a news release the facility, located in Charlotte County, will cost $4.3 million and be in full operation in the first quarter of 2014.

The new center will be able to process up to 100,000 tons of biosolids and green waste per year, creating 75,000 cubic yards of Class AA compost annually.

Synagro, an environmental solutions company, plans to use aerobic composting to recycle organics, including biosolids, yard trimming and other green waste. The project’s design allows for 100-percent recycling of the materials, the company said.

Synagro's technology already is in operation at three regional compost facilities in the western United States.
