Distributed Energy Resource Survey
The research team for the ongoing project, “Opportunities and Barriers for Distributed Energy Resource Development at Water and Wastewater Utilities”, is conducting a survey to understand and improve integration of distributed energy into water and wastewater utilities. This project is cosponsored by the Water Research Foundation and the Water Environment & Reuse Foundation.
Biofuels and Bioproducts from Wet and Gaseous Waste Streams: Challenges and Opportunities
Biofuels and Bioproducts from Wet and Gaseous Waste Streams: Challenges and Opportunities, published by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office is the first comprehensive assessment of the resource potential and technology opportunities provided by feedstocks, including wastewater treatment-derived sludge and biosolids, animal manure, food waste, inedible fats and greases, biogas, and carbon dioxide streams. The product features multiple WE&RF projects.
Anaerobic Digestion Data Collection Project
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promotes diversion of organic materials from landfills and encourages practices like the processing of organic materials, such as food waste, by anaerobic digestion. This includes co-digestion of outside organic materials at water resource recovery facilities to generate biogas for renewable energy recovery. Learn more about their data collection activities.
