The Clay County Utility Authority (CCUA) is the 2013 recipient of the Florida Water Environment Association (FWEA) Biosolids/Residuals Program Excellence Award for Technology Innovation and Development. CCUA received the award for implementing BCR Environmental’s Neutralizer® solution at its four regional wastewater treatment facilities.

FWEA’s Biosolids/Residuals Program Excellence Awards recognize excellence in all areas of biosolids management including programs with sound management, effective communication to stakeholders, and community-friendly practices. The purpose of these awards is to recognize and promote the safe management, public acceptance and beneficial use of biosolids.

“Implementing Neutralizer® at our wastewater treatment facilities has allowed us to simplify our biosolids treatment operations and lower our costs while producing a higher quality end product” said Dennis Martin, General Superintendent of Wastewater at CCUA. “We are honored that the Florida Water Environment Association has chosen to recognize our program through this award.”

Since implementing BCR's Neutralizer® solution, CCUA has experienced elimination of odor issues and a reduction in energy consumption of approximately 90% compared to their previous biosolids treatment system. The implementation has also contributed to overall operating cost control, while at the same time upgrading their residuals from a Class B product to a Class A/EQ fertilizer.

“CCUA is an innovator in biosolids treatment and we are extremely proud of the role that BCR was able to play in helping them develop a biosolids management program that is providing an economic benefit to the county and an environmental benefit to the region,” said Aaron Zahn, BCR President and CEO.
