The Metropolitan Wastewater Treatment Plant (MWWTP) has been incinerating sewage sludge for six decades using multiple hearth incineration technology developed over a century ago. The MWWTP treats approximately 225 million gallons per day and processes 200 tons of dry solids per day.
Due to the age of the solids processing equipment, the MWWTP is faced with increasing maintenance costs required to keep equipment operational and continue meeting regulatory requirements.
