Today, the South Davis Sewer District (SDSD) announces the selection and implementation of CLEARAS Water Recovery’s Advanced Biological Nutrient Recovery (ABNR™) technology at its 4,000,000 gallon per day South Plant. ABNR is a key component of a $24 million plant upgrade to sustainably meet current and future nutrient discharge regulations. The ABNR platform, which is highly modular and scalable, leverages the relationship between biological (algae) and mechanical processes to achieve best-in-class nutrient removal. The ABNR project, which broke ground this month (May 2017), will bolt-on to existing South Plant wastewater infrastructure and is part of a larger upgrade of the South Davis treatment facility which also includes the construction of a food waste to energy process, which will produce 2,500 decatherms of renewable natural gas.
These projects represent the District’s focus on creating value for their rate-paying customers using sustainable, environmentally friendly technology. The ABNR project is estimated to take 14 months to complete and will be featured in October 2017 at the Algae Biomass Organization (ABO) Summit being hosted in Salt Lake City, UT.
“The SDSD ABNR facility demonstrates how innovative technology can be implemented to recover resources, provide significant environmental benefits to the region, produce reuse quality water and generate co-product income to offset costs,” said Dal Wayment, General Manager of SDSD. He…
