The City of Orlando has over twenty years of experience in the operation and maintenance of anaerobic digesters. Fifteen (15) years ago the City committed significant capital for cogeneration equipment at the Conserv II Water Reclamation Facility to utilize methane gas produced by the
digestion process to generate electricity and to capture heat released by the generators to maintain target digester operating temperatures. Orlando had designed and constructed state of the art digestion systems complying with best practice engineering standards, but with the advent of 40
CFR Part 503 Sludge Rule in the early 90's, began to appreciate the “Potential Regulatory Achilles Heel of Anaerobic Digestion.”
