Moultrie, GA (WALB) - The city of Moultrie is hoping as much as two million dollars in stimulus money will help make the city's Waste Water Treatment Plant greener.
The city wants to convert the methane gas naturally emitted from the site into biogas to help break down the waste. It could eventually save the city as much as $40,000 a year.
Most people in Moultrie don't know, a green algae is used in an anaerobic digestor in the first phase of breaking down waste water. In a planned expansion of the plant, the city wants to add another green process at the plant that would save money by reusing the methane gas the plant naturally produces.
Thad Take out the natural gas boilers and piping that we use right now and replacing it with the piping and the specific type of boilers that can use the methane gas to do the same thing the natural gas was doing.
Right now the city pays for natural gas to break down that sludge.
Thad We spend roughly $30,000/$40,000 a year on natural gas and that would pretty much wipe that out.
This green process that reuses the methane gas could also allow farmers to reuse the leftover waste on their fields, saving the city from hauling it away.
Thad Reuse it to heat the sludge in the digesters even more to get to a point where you could even spread this stuff on a farmers field or something like that.
All that's holding up the project is funding, and now stimulus money could help with that and because this project is environmentally friendly it stands a better chance of getting the funds.
It's becoming more prevalent as we develop newer ways ways to more efficient ways to capture the methane in order to be able to do this process.
It's a shovel ready project that's just waiting for a green light to get started. Engineers hope to hear more about the money for the project in the next month.
