This week, we call your attention to Congratulating DC Water in commissioning a groundbreaking project on October 7th that is the first in North America to employ the use of thermal hydrolysis technology — which provides clean, green renewable power by converting collected sewage solids into methane, which is cleaned and then sent through turbines for the production of electric power and recoverable heat. Remaining nutrient-rich biosolids are then used to produce a class A compost for use in landscaping, restoration, gardening and tree planting. This unique project involving WDBC member firms Brown & Caldwell, Arcadis, Black & Veatch, AECOM, CH2M and CDMSmith used both design-build delivery and design-build-operate. More information on this world-class project will be posted on the project page.
As a nonprofit organization, WDBC is dedicated to fulfilling its mission through its research and education initiatives and by fostering collaborative relationships with all stakeholders to achieve successful projects.
