JACKSONVILLE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NuTerra, a designer, builder, and provider of services based on proprietary financial and risk analysis models that help municipalities address capital and operating changes, today announced that it has begun installing a new CleanB® system at the wastewater treatment plant in Vero Beach that will save transportation and energy costs, eliminate odors, and provide environmental benefits to the city. Completion of the project is slated for summer 2016.
Vero Beach is the sixth wastewater treatment operation in Florida to adopt BCR Environmental’s CleanB® as a way to address diminishing disposal outlets and landfill capacity, increasing environmental regulations, and rising energy costs. Alachua, Lake Wales, Ft. Pierce, Pembroke Pines, and the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville have been using CleanB systems that produce odorless biosolids and reduce nutrient return loads created by digestion processes.
In 10 minutes of contact time, the CleanB system disinfects, eliminates odor, and enhances dewatering of secondary sludge without the need for aerobic digestion, odor-control systems and other costly and energy-intensive equipment. Increases of five percent or more in total cake solids are not uncommon. The resultant dewatered material enables access to a greater number of disposal outlets and beneficial reuse strategies.
NuTerra designs, builds, and provides services for long-term sustainable organic waste and biosolids management solutions. The company has a 100 percent successful track record and has delivered an average savings of 40-plus percent in operating costs and 90-plus percent in energy consumption. In the industry’s most collaborative public-private partnerships, NuTerra efficiently addresses capital and operating expenses, regulatory compliance, public sentiment, and environmental issues (i.e. noise, odor, material handling, physical footprint, greenhouse gas emissions). Its “progressive” project delivery method is the most cost-effective approach for addressing population growth, urban encroachment, and failing infrastructure with a dramatic reduction in facility size. NuTerra further reduces investment and risk by using the industry’s only before-and-after financial and risk models based on verifiable operational and financial data, feasibility analysis, and proven advanced technologies. The company can help obtain financing for projects to address escalating capital requirements that are typically underfunded, and offers municipalities total waste reutilization by recycling nutrients into high-value, marketable end products that address diminishing disposal outlets, restrictive landfill capacity, escalating unit costs, increasing environmental regulations and rising energy costs.
