Chestnut Hill BioEnergy has terminated its contract to buy a former Waterbury factory to convert it into the power plant.
The company said it is not interested in engaging in a fight for 18 months with people who arent even willing to listen to what it's going to do.
Chestnut Hill planned to build a plant that would take in 625 tons of food waste a day and convert it into methane gas and burn the methane to generate electricity.
The 12-megawatt power plant would have employed 40 to 50 people.
Chestnut Hill still plans to build the plant somewhere in the state.
