Metro Vancouver Looks for ‘Novel’ Uses for Recycled Sewage

Vancouver, BC, Canada (2/23/17) -- Metro Vancouver is conducting a feasibility study for dried biosolids that would be used in a variety of ways, including as fuel. In addition to exploring biosolids fuels, Metro Vancouver has provided some project funding to design and construct a pilot hydothemal processing facility at the Annacis Island Wastewater Treatment Plant. The facility would convert sewage into biocrude instead of biosolids. Biocrude could then be sold to oil refineries.
