This webinar will focus on a case study of the evolution of a wastewater treatment plant to a food waste to energy facility for the cogeneration of heat and energy.  Introduction of food waste into the wastewater treatment process has resulted in a higher capture rate of energy value while decreasing landfilling for food waste generators. All this is being done while still functioning as a typical wastewater treatment plant and meeting all permit effluent limits.
