Abstract:

The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) is facing many of the challenges common to all wastewater utilities; reduced loading to the system, reduced revenues, increasing energy costs, and the public's desire for sustainable practices. Trucked high strength waste co-digestion can help to address each of these challenges. The MMSD has conducted research on waste co-digestion and a small scale operation for the past 10 years. The MMSD gained additional first hand knowledge of successful co-digestion programs and has decided to leverage this knowledge along with their own research to expand their program on an accelerated schedule. A successful high strength waste co-digestion program will support many of the MMSD's sustainability goals.
