We help wastewater treatment plants transition to become resource recovery facilities by managing FOG through our FOG Management and Waste-To-Energy platform. Such transition addresses environmental-stewardship and decarbonization mandates that have become central to public policy.
Billions of gallons of FOG (fats, oils, grease) are discharged into collection systems annually, causing large-scale problems such as pipe blockages that lead to sanitary sewer overflows. FOG is costly to manage, treat and dispose, and has a negative impact on the environment due to standard disposal procedures such as landfilling and incineration. Rethinking the way FOG is treated at your WWTP has the potential to change your facility from a net consumer of energy to energy neutral — or even to a net producer of energy.
Our platform diverts and captures FOG, converting this (brown grease) waste onsite without interference to the operations of your plant — and in an automated and continuous-flow system — into ASTM B100 biodiesel that you can utilize to peak shave your energy consumption from the grid, or to eventually eliminate this consumption altogether. You can also utilize it to fuel your municipality’s fleets and reduce respective carbon emissions by up to 74%. Biodiesel you choose not to consume can be sold to local or regional fuel distributors for a considerable profit. Over the past 10 years, B100 biodiesel has been consistently more valuable than other alternative fuels.
Developed under the auspices of the University of Connecticut over the past 14 years, we utilize our unique and patented technology to partner with infrastructure developers and operators to develop projects for municipalities worldwide.
