#no2tour: Your chance to see technology take on wastewater

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.
