What exactly is ReVenture?
ReVenture Park will transform a 667-acre Superfund site along the Catawba River into the region’s first Eco-Industrial Energy Park. The re-development plan will breathe new life into the site by re-using the extensive existing infrastructure to create a platform for large scale renewable energy and alternative fuel projects. The Eco-Industrial Park is designed to leverage synergies between multiple sustainable components including a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) power plant, solar fields, incubator labs, wastewater treatment and reuse, and R&D facilities.
Environmental stewardship is also a core facet of ReVenture Park. The sites natural resources will be enhanced by a 177 acre conservation easement, wildlife habitat enhancement projects, stream restoration and a connector for the Carolina Thread Trail.
When fully development, ReVenture Park will be an economic driver for the region through the investment of new businesses and the creation of ‘green collar’ jobs.
