BCR Environmental announced today that the company will install Neutralizer® systems at Martin County’s Tropical Farms and North County wastewater treatment plants as part of a guaranteed Performance Contract.
The Neutralizer® systems will reduce energy consumption by 90% (1,800 MW/yr), reduce operating costs by $600,000 in the first year of operation (average of $920,000 annually over the next 15 years), eliminate odor, upgrade the County’s regulatory compliance from Class B to Class A standards, reduce sludge volume and produce a high-quality beneficial reuse product to improve nutrient loading in the environmentally sensitive Okeechobee River Basin.
"We welcome the opportunity to demonstrate the multiple benefits of BCR’s biosolids management solutions to Martin County," said Aaron Zahn, BCR President and CEO. "And we are proud to play an integral part in easing the economic and environmental burdens faced by the County."
As part of a guaranteed Performance Contract, BCR is able to guarantee future energy and operating cost savings to Martin County resulting from the Neutralizer® upgrades to its wastewater treatment plants.
"We had three simple goals: 1) reduce cost by at least 25%, 2) reduce regulatory and operating risk, 3) improve our infrastructure to continue Martin County’s Certified Gold standard of Sustainability," said John Polley, Martin County Utilities & Solid Waste Director. "BCR designed a project that exceeded every goal."
