Evoqua has been chosen 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 consumer products giant Procter & Gamble Co (P&G).
The new plant, to be built by DCO Energy in Albany, Georgia, will provide 100% of the steam energy used by P&G's Albany manufacturing facility. The steam will be used mainly for drying paper products.
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 Corporation.
The cogeneration plant will turn waste wood and agricultural products into 425,000 pounds per hour 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, Florida service center. The condensate polishing system will use Evoqua's off-site condensate polishing services in Rockford, Illinois.
