The Ultimate Renewable Fuel Never Stops Flowing
Turning Wastewater into a Reliable Energy Source
As energy costs rise and carbon reduction becomes a priority, local authorities and municipalities need to move to more economical renewable energy solutions, running on sewage gas, delivering cogeneration or combined heat and power (CHP), helping wastewater treatment plants meet long-term sustainability goals.
Reducing Waste and Emissions from Cogeneration
The process of treating wastewater generates biosolids which need to be managed in anaerobic digesters, which in turn produce a methane gas called sewage gas. Enerflex has extensive experience and practical know-how to install gas-to-energy systems which can produce electricity and heat onsite from often overlooked resources.
Enerflex’s sewage gas-to-energy solutions efficiently and reliably convert sewage gas into electricity. This solution can supply the wastewater treatment plant the majority of the power needed, as well as heat to keep the water treatment process optimized.
