BIOSOLIDS: Innovative Residuals and Biosolids Management Options from Terminal Island in Los Angeles (7-27-2011)
07/27/2011 - 2:00 - 3:30 PM
This no charge webcast, hosted by the National Biosolids Partnership (NBP) and the Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF), provides timely information and results from the Terminal Island Renewable Energy (TIRE) program at the City of Los Angeles, CA. With more than 3 years of work, funding and support from various sources including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Department of Energy, National Science Foundation, and the City of Los Angeles, this program demonstrates an innovative method of biosolids management that provides both short and long term benefits. These range from the enhanced treatment, sterilization, and management of biosolids; a smaller carbon footprint that reduces greenhouse gas emissions to the environment and, and provides a potential source of clean renewable energy. The City of Los Angeles biosolids environmental management system has been certified by the NBP.
- biosolids, energy recovery, sterilization
- Learn about an innovative biosolids treatment and management technology and how this can be applied for the management of residuals such as brine
- Understand key lessons from the TIRE demonstration project, as well as factors that determine their consideration for a particular application – all of which are crucial to successful implementation
- Identify the potential and requirements associated with implementation of this technology in your local or regional facility that both reduce costs and provide environmental benefits
- Learn about future Targeted Collaborative Research (TCR) opportunity
- Glenn Reinhardt (WERF): Welcoming Remarks and Next steps on WERF’s targeted collaborative research
