FuelCell Energy offers proven, end-to-end solutions for wastewater treatment plants. Our unique technology treats the anaerobic digester gas so that the fuel cell plant can run directly off of it. As a result, the system efficiently produces renewable energy from direct biogas.
On-site power can improve a facility's energy resiliency. Through our long-term service agreements, FuelCell Energy’s technicians can assist with installation, operation, maintenance, and 24/7 remote monitoring.
The fuel cell plant uses an electrochemical reaction, rather than combustion, and can improve local air quality by eliminating the need to flare biogas. The clean emissions profile can help a site avoid current and future air permitting challenges. Watch this timelapse of the flare turning off at the Tulare, California wastewater treatment plant. FuelCell Energy is now capturing the excess biogas to use as renewable fuel.
