Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Evoqua, Warrendale, Pa., USA, was selected by energy developer DCO Energy LLC to provide equipment and services for a new $200 million, 50 MW biomass/wood waste-to-energy cogeneration project for Procter & Gamble Co. in Albany, Georgia. The new plant, to be built by DCO Energy, will provide 100% of the steam energy used by P&G's Albany manufacturing facility. The steam will be used mainly for drying tissue paper.

Scheduled for completion in mid-2017, the plant will be known as Albany Green Energy. It will be owned and operated by Constellation, a subsidiary of Exelon Corp.

The cogeneration plant will turn waste wood and agricultural products into 425,000 lb./hr. of process steam for P&G and 385,000 MWh per year of electrical power to be purchased by Georgia Power.

Evoqua has been selected to provide a boiler feedwater makeup system and a condensate polishing system for the operation. The feedwater makeup system will use Evoqua's Vantage® PTI multimedia pretreatment system, double-pass Vantage Membrane Series M286 Reverse Osmosis systems, VFD pumps, and ion exchange polishing resin using customized Evoqua FlexMate™ tanks.

Both the feedwater makeup and condensate polishing processes will take advantage of Evoqua services to reduce capital costs and on-site chemical storage. Off-site resin regeneration for the feedwater makeup system will be done at Evoqua's Jacksonville, Fla. service center. The condensate polishing system will use Evoqua's off-site condensate polishing services in Rockford, Ill.

"This project will help our customer’s customer meet a commitment to operate on 100% renewable steam," said Rodney Aulick, president of Evoqua’s Industrial Projects & Services division. "We're proud to be recognized for our expertise and customer commitment as part of an effort that will make generating energy a cleaner and more efficient process."
