As I have written before, we have built the first CAMBI thermal hydrolysis and digester system in North America which also happens to be the largest in the world. The benefits and costs of this project are both enormous: at a sticker price of $470 million dollars, the new system will generate 10 net megawatts
Maintenance saves the world! Every day, all over the world, maintenance men and women are both protecting us and saving money. In the water world we often think our efforts are unheralded, and within our unheralded world, the most unheralded work may be maintenance. Yet there is a good case that their work is near
As promised, I am writing a final innovation post about various examples of innovation underway or already in place at DC Water. It’s often thought that water utilities are risk adverse and lacking in innovation. DC Water is challenging this notion and is a prime example of how the water utility sector is moving faster
I promised a third post to provide examples of innovations we have been able to discover and implement at DC Water. In considering this goal, I have decided to divide this part into three sections – there’s just too much great progress to cram in one post!One part I have already published here: Innovation in Action. This first example highlighted
Take a look at the short video below. I am speaking about the extraordinary team that we have assembled to plan, research, assess and then design the world’s largest, and North America’s first, thermo-hydrolysis system to turn the solid material we remove from the wastewater at Blue Plains into heat, power, and a clean fertilizer.
