You may have heard the news that DC Water is using waste to meet at least some of the Blue Plains plant's energy needs. And in doing so, is converting #PooptoPower. In less crass terms, DC Water's $470 million
waste-to-energy project... is producing a net 10 megawatts (MW) of electricity from the wastewater treatment process, providing clean, renewable energy to power about< one-third of the Blue Plains plants energy needs.
You can learn more about this new-to-North-America technology on one of DC Water Halloween Tours (aka #no2tour) October 28 - 30. These tours are typically restricted to scientists and resource recovery folks, but DC Water wants to share the great news and technology with DC residents. But hurry; space is limited.
