Today, more than ever, we need sustainable and renewable energy sources that don’t deplete our limited supply of natural resources. Our environment is fragile, and it’s important to recycle and reuse energy any way we can.
Biogas is one form of sustainable energy that can be sourced from existing wastewater treatment plants. During anaerobic digestion of high-strength wastewater, methane gas is produced by microorganisms that degrade compounds like large organic polymers.
Once biogas is produced from the biological treatment of wastewater, it is burned at a CHP plant to meet industrial and commercial energy demands. This process is beneficial to our clients who want to recycle energy from wastewater and reduce their dependence on other, less sustainable forms of energy.
