Biogas By The Numbers (USA)

11/22/2013

Looking to cut costs and become more energy efficient, an increasing number of wastewater treatment plants are turning to anaerobic digestion to create biogas. To better understand the scope of anaerobic digestion and biogas generation in the United States, the North East Biosolids and Residuals Association, Black & Veatch, the Water Environment Federation (WEF), and other organizations, joined forces beginning in June 2011. Together they compiled data from 5,127 wastewater treatment plants (one-third of all permitted WWTPs), the EPA, and approximately 20 wastewater industry experts, to create the recently completed Biogas Database.
