Use case: Wastewater treatment facilities

SureSource power plants are fuel flexible and can utilize on-site, renewable biogas as a fuel source; therefore, wastewater treatment facilities with readily available biogas are well suited for our fuel cell solutions. In this application, FuelCell Energy converts wastewater emission disposal problems into operating cost savings via a turn-key solution that also:

  • Provides a complete fuel cell solution that includes cleaning and utilizing the on-site biogas (rather than flaring it) and operating both the gas clean-up skid and the fuel cell power plant long-term
  • Avoids clean air permitting challenges as fuel cells utilize an electrochemical process that produces power in a manner that is virtually absent of criteria pollutants, such as NOx, SOx and particulate matter
