Source: U.S. Department of Energy Date: October 19, 2021 Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) require a reliable source of electrical power, as power outages can lead to spills that cause health and sanitation issues in local communities. WWTPs that use anaerobic digesters produce methane-rich biogas, which is often burned for heat or flared away, but this […]
Cogeneration net efficiencies of 80 percent are possible because the technology recovers much of the steam’s latent heat. CHP continues to increase in popularity across a broad spectrum of industries. More information.
Michigan has scheduled two virtual listening sessions for public comments to help chart Michigan climate future on January 26 (10 AM to Noon) and February 8 (6 to 8 PM)
