When natural gas prices skyrocketed in the mid-2000s, the city wanted to eliminate the costs associated with the drying of biosolids from the wastewater treatment process and establish a green disposal method.
Install and operate one ACE FB24-1000 biosolids gasification system. This system was developed specifically for processing municipal sewage biosolids. The system applied a thermo-chemical conversion of the wastewater residuals to generate thermal energy. This renewable energy was then recovered to reduce or eliminate other energy sources, providing energy savings and biosolids destruction for customers, and operates on the following specifications:
The fluidized bed gasification system yielded waste, energy, and emissions benefits for Sanford:
