Combined Heat and Power Generation Opportunities at Wastewater Treatment Facilities
09/22/2010 - 2:00 - 4:00 pm EDT
This webcast, hosted by the National Biosolids Partnership (NBP), will bring together plant operators, utility managers, consultants, engineers, equipment/process vendors, regulators, and academics interested in learning about the state of the practice and opportunities for combined heat and power from wastewater treatment plant operations. Join NBP for the third in a series of “no charge” quarterly webcasts based on critical biosolids technical topics.
2.0 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) training credit will be offered for webcast attendees. Information will be posted on this site and will be emailed to registrants prior to the webcast along with call in instructions.
- Learn about various technology options for Combined Heat and Power at wastewater facilities
- Learn about how utilities are considering methods to reduce and/or offset the power required to treat wastewater
- Learn how anaerobic digestion of sewage sludge to produce digester gas can reduce electric power consumption and generate heat
- Learn the economical considerations for generating excess heat and power for potential marketing to the electrical grid
