B2BWebinars.net, the leading producer of cutting-edge business intelligence events, is pleased to announce the BlueTech® Webinar Series: Sludge to Energy: Tapping into Biogas webinar, which includes an industry review of economic feasibility, marketing opportunities and enabling technologies. The 90-minute interactive web-conference is scheduled for May 23, 2013 at 11:00am EST.
Sludge treatment and disposal is one of the most significant costs associated with wastewater treatment. Existing outlets, such as beneficial re-use of biosolids in agriculture, are coming under significant pressure. As a result, there is a growing movement to try and recover energy and resources from waste sludge and treated biosolids.
Because a large number of treatment plants use anaerobic digestion as part of the treatment process, it creates a significant market for biogas-to-energy technology.
In the United States, 49 million MWhr of energy enters municipal wastewater treatment plants every year - in terms of biogas, sludge and carbon dioxide. Of the energy converted to biogas, only a third is utilized, while the remaining two-thirds are flared.
During the webinar, an international panel of leading consultants, municipalities and technology providers will share their perspectives on current technology and emerging developments in the United States and Europe.
The experts will provide an overview of the anaerobic digester landscapes in Europe and North America, explain the drivers to generate biogas as a fuel, describe challenges to biogas conditioning and production rate and lay out the impacts to air quality of biogas to energy facilities.
