Wastewater treatment plant builds profit center from anaerobic digestion



Wastewater treatment plant builds profit center from anaerobic digestion



BioCycle 45(10): 31-32, 34



This paper describes a waste water treatment plant in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, which leverages biosolids programmes to achieve renewable energy goals through creative management of anaerobic digesters. This plant uses both primary and secondary waste water treatment processes to treat sewage. The primary and secondary sludges are pumped into the plant's egg-shaped digesters for further biological treatment.
