Biosolid Innovation: How did LASAN successfully get its deep well injection renewable energy plant off the ground in a sustainable way? Is the tech scalable?
Enrique shared 3 top takeaways from the discussion:
1. Leverage technology that can be added to different points in the wastewater treatment process to reduce products of biosolids, increase biogas formation and reduce odors
2. Scalable beneficial reuse of biosolids with low fixed capital investment, $8-10 million project that takes approx. 20% avg total biosolids produced; ability to take up to 50%
3. US EPA supportive of injection of biosolids into old oil well for biosolid disposals. EPA moving towards allowing additional and similar demonstration projects elsewhere
