Community Earth Day Celebrations, Engineering Tours and Testing Showcase Success in Edmonds

  May 1, 2024

Ecoremedy celebrated Earth Day in Edmonds, Washington – site of the company’s newest project – by distributing growable planter kits to members of the community who visited the city’s wastewater treatment plant. The event served as a platform to showcase Ecoremedy’s innovative Fluid Lift Gasification™ process that greatly reduces emissions and contributes to a cleaner Puget Sound.

The plant’s gasification system is now fully commissioned after logic rewrite and bin/conveyor modifications to meet the city’s desired change to a 24/7 operation. Ecoremedy delivered a fully automated process that includes push-button start and stop capabilities. In its initial months, the gasification system has achieved 97 percent mass and volume reduction of the 20 percent TS biosolids cake. All air emissions tests were passed for heavy metals, dioxins/furans and gas pollutants (NOx, SOx, CO, HCl, VOC).

In April, Ecoremedy collaborated with the national Water Research Foundation (WRF) and national engineering firm, Hazen and Sawyer, to conduct a full PFAS test. The testing included both inbound biosolids and water as well as outbound air, water and residual product FLGSandTM. PFAS tests results are anticipated early summer. Ecoremedy has already tested inbound sludge and confirmed total PFAS destruction in the FLGSand.

Numerous tours of the system and facility have been hosted by Ecoremedy and received outstanding feedback from national engineering firms as well as other municipalities considering gasification.
