New Jersey Wastewater treatment plant adds biogas conditioning system
Hanover County's Wastewater treatment plant is installing a biogas conditioning system. The system will allow the biogas to be used to power a 100 KW engine, and conditioning it before using it gives a longer life span for the engine. Clean Methane Systems will be implementing their conditioning technology for the facility. The facility previously flared off its biogas, and is making this investment to decrease its dependence on fuel oil. More>>

With Compost Program, Keeping Waste From Going to Waste
In a pilot project 100,000 households are putting their organic waste into designated bins. New York is trying to change the cities mindset to see garbage as "feedstock" to provide nutrients and energy that shouldn't not go to waste. The city sees the future as combining the methane producing power from the wastewater treatment process as wells as the recycling of organic wastes. The largest treatment plant, Newtown Creek, has recently upgraded their purification process to allow the energy produced to be used for household supply in Brooklyn. More>>

In Haines, Florida the ground has broken for a new organics recycling facility. This facility is the second step in providing fertilizers from organic recycling for residents and the communities as a whole. Back in 2012, the city of Haines upgraded their wastewater treatment process to give the biosolids produced a Class AA/EQ rating. That first part is allowing this second facility to combine the Class AA/EQ status biosolids and other organic waste from the communities to create a usable fertilizer. NuTerra has worked on both phases of the project. More>>
