NEW TECHN0LOGY FOR REMOVAL OF SILOXANES IN DIGESTER GAS RESULTS IN LOWER MAINTENANCE COSTS AND AIR QUALITY BENEFITS IN POWER GENERATION EQUIPMENT
Abstract:For several decades, Wastewater treatment facilities have used digester-produced methane gas to generate heat for operations and power for onsite requirements. Its use today and into the future will become more important as costs for maintenance and fuel continue to rise. Further, fuel security issues and environmental air quality will also play a larger role in the production and use of digester gas as the costs for natural gas rise. Increasing the use of digester gas for operations and power generation at WWTP facilities can be pursued only if the costs associated with using this resource are lower than the purchase price of natural gas.
