Dallas Water Utilities (DWU) has identified multiple projects within their wastewater treatment
plants (WWTPs) to support the Green Dallas Initiative for energy conservation and
sustainability. In 2010, a new co-generation facility at the Southside Wastewater Treatment Plant
(SWWTP) will be brought on-line. This facility will utilize digester gas for electricity
production. As part of the Green Dallas Initiative, and to optimize the co-generation facility, the
feasibility of adding high strength wastes to the anaerobic digesters at SWWTP to increase the
digester gas production was evaluated.
