Within 12 months of beginning a three-year pilot project with the Morrisville Municipal Authority (MMA), Ecoremedy® engineered, financed, permitted, and constructed the facility under an innovative BOOM (Build/Own/Operate/Manage) model. MMA provided a quarter-acre parcel adjacent to their dewatering building and a biosolids supply contract for a fixed fee per ton to Ecoremedy.
During the pilot project, Ecoremedy successfully gasified biosolids cake generated at the MMA wastewater treatment plant into renewable thermal energy, without the need for supplemental fuel, and produced two beneficial use products: US EPA approved alternative fuel and sterilized concentrated minerals with non-detectable levels of PFAS chemicals and other harmful contaminants. Prior to concluding the pilot project, Ecoremedy received the US EPA’s determination that the Fluid Lift™ gasification technology prevents the combustion of sewage sludge. This critical ruling confirms our technology is not sewage sludge incineration.
