The CCMUA (Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority) treats approximately 6,290 million gallons of wastewater per day. In 2014 CCMUA decided to install a cogeneration plant to exploit biosolids generated by the wastewater treatment. The existing infrastructure of the plant was converted into anaerobic digestors and the biogas produced is burnt in 2 dual fuel CHP plants of 1.9 MW each, which produce around 3,8 MW of electricity that is consumed locally; while thermal energy is used by CCMUA to heat the digesters. This project gives the possibility to CCMUA to decrease greenhouse emissions, create green and reliable local power and allows local job creation.
