Zero Net Energy Nutrient Recovery Facilities: An Economical Path to Sustainable Agriculture, Energy Recovery, and Clean Water

Mark Ramirez, Process Engineer and Scientist at DC Water's Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant, will present this seminar. Throughout the world, as urban populations increase, wastewater treatment plants become stewards of an ever-increasing quantity of plant nutrients. In the United States, the process of collecting these nutrients requires approximately 75 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) per year, or about 3 percent of the electricity consumed in this country. DC Water will present new technologies that will reduce energy consumption to net zero levels and to recycle over 100,000 dry tons of plant fertilizer for a sustainable agricultural program. {Will appear in FYI on Mar 24, 2014
