Ithaca Area Waste Water Treatment Facility, Ithaca, NY

Project: GEM Energy worked with the developer on this biogas renewable fuel project. The system includes four C65 Capstone® Microturbines with integrated heat exchangers producing 260kW of electric power and 1 million BTUs of hot water. The hot water is used to heat the anaerobic digester and supplement building heating requirements.

Microorganisms inside the digester break down

the treated sludge which releases a percentage of methane – a reusable form of energy. Moisture and siloxanes are removed from the digester gas using a proven gas conditioning system. The cleaned gas directly fuels the microturbines.

Ithaca’s plant is one of the rst wastewater treatment facilities in the country to add other waste streams to their digester. Whey and septage are currently being added to the digester, with plans to add food waste in the future. The additional waste streams increase the amount of digester gas allowing for more electric- ity generation.

Result: The system is expected to provide 50-60% of the plant’s annual electricity use with the goal be- ing zero net energy use.
