Altoona Water Authority Energy Savings & Biosolids Management Project

What was the Challenge?

The Altoona Water Authority’s (AWA) Westerly Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) is an activated sludge plant that incorporates biological nutrient removal.

How did Barton & Loguidice provide a solution?

Their biosolids disposal method was becoming unsustainable, so they engaged the Energy Systems Group (ESG)/B&L team to provide services for this water resource recovery project, converting biosolids combined with other high strength organic waste into renewable energy.

Why was the project a success?

This energy came in the form of biogas with a byproduct of Class A dried biosolid that can be used as fertilizer. Altoona Water Authority’s treatment facility is now a “Utility of the Future.”
