6 Biosolids & Energy Recovery Project Project Objectives:Beneficially reuse Biosolids and Biogases produced during the treatment process.Manage residuals (Biosolids) at reduced costs to IRWD’s customers.Construct project to meet IRWD’s future Biosolids handling needs.Minimize environmental impacts: Drying and pelletizing reduces export truck loads by a factor of four.Reduces greenhouse gas effects by beneficially using pellets locally as a fertilizer or e-fuel.
7 Biosolids & Energy Recovery Project Project Description:IRWD to construct facilities at MWRP for:Biosolids digestion, dewatering and dryingBiogas management and energy recoveryOdor control systemsIRWD would no longer export solids to Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD).Project would also accept Biosolids trucked in from IRWD’s Los Alisos Water Recycling Plant (LAWRP).

17 Alt. 3 – Microturbines Biogas Priorities: Use in the micro-turbines to get SCE incentives.When dryer and micro-turbines are off, use in boilers to heat digesters, if needed.Excess biogas (very little) diverted to enclosed gas burner.Use natural gas in the dryer.
