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.
