The City of Atlanta Wastewater Services Division undertook a “fast tracked” upgrade of its multiple hearth furnace at its R.M. Clayton Water Reclamation Center in 2001. The project was completed just in time to meet the 503 regulatory deadline and incorporated new emission control system technologies. The emission and operational control improvements achieved by using new, patented scrubber and flue gas re-circulation technology has cost-effectively renewed, not only the multiple hearth furnace, but also the City's re-considered interest in continuing biosolids thermal processing for the foreseeable future. This paper reviews what the upgrade project included, results achieved, and how it got done within critical time limits and eliminated a major visual public nuisance that had been a “landmark” on Atlanta's north side.
