WASTEWATER. Through combined technology and equipment, treatment facilities can achieve energy-neutral status by harvesting the residual energy in wastewater processing.
Wastewater treatment plants can process agriculture, food wastes, and other organic materials and repurpose them for power. Diverting the waste through anerobic digesters produces biogas to generate renewable energy. Flex Turbines® can then convert that biogas to offset 100% of the wastewater plant’s electricity.
LANDFILL. Landfills globally produce millions of tons of methane each year. The world’s greenhouse gas reduction goals target capturing and using this methane rather than venting and flaring. Flex Turbines generate power from low quality landfill gas that contains as little as 38% methane. This ability to handle gas with such low BTU content helps to reduce flaring and prolong renewable energy production from a landfill’s methane resource.
With less than 9 ppmv of NOx the Flex Turbine readily meets air quality standards and environmental regulations. The Flex Turbine with its proven reliability runs continuously on conditioned landfill gas, supplying both clean air and 24/7 renewable energy.
