Abstract:

The Ventura Regional Sanitation District (VRSD), an enterprise public agency serving 600,000 residents of Ventura County, Calif., designed and recently began operating an innovative facility that uses gas from decomposing refuse in a landfill as fuel to dry up to 160 tons of biosolids daily and simultaneously generate more than 2.32 megawatts of electricity. The facility recycles nearly all of the resources it uses, and its modular design is expandable for future needs and replicable at virtually any landfill worldwide.
